ECW Think Tank: Working in LENR

Here’s a topic that I think migbt be on the minds of many people who are following the topic of LENR, and who are thinking that it could well be very significant technology:

How can I find work in this field? Where will the jobs be? What kinds of training/education should I get to best position me for employment in this new industry should it take off?

Right now, as far as I can tell, there are only a handful of people working full time on LENR, and getting paid to do so, but we could be on the verge of this field becoming a major growth industry.

As far as most of the wider world is concerned, the field is simply not valid, and so precious little funding is devoted to it, and for those who want to work in LENR there are no real avenues for entry in terms of employment. But that could well change, and if it does, how could one position oneself to get work?

These are some questions I’d like to throw open for people to consider and comment on. As always, thanks in advance for your thoughts.
