The time has come for technical people in industry to take the lead in establishing international programs in energy research and development. To show why we believe this, we will have to explain why we think international ventures in the energy field will turn out to be best handled by industry‐to‐industry contacts, rather than through some kind of government‐to‐government dialog, and also why we think it is time that industrial scientists, rather than purely business‐minded executives, played leading roles. Close links with cooperating government agencies will of course still be appropriate and necessary, but initiatives should now come from industrial scientists.
