Andrea Rossi has mentioned that Leonardo Corporation has assembled a committee of scientific advisers to help with the development of E-Cat products and today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics he has given a little more detail about at least one member. Here are the relevant comments:
In our scientific commettee of Leonardo Corp. we have the honour to have a top level scientist that worked in the Caradache (sic) plant. Obviously we have always to learn . . .
I agree with your analysis about the Hot Fusion. About the great scientist that hot fusion has given to us, obviously you talk of Dr Pierre Clauzon ( Commissariat Pour l’Energie Atomique, Paris- France) now also a member of the scientific commettee of Leonardo Corporation that soon will work with the QuarkX too. Here is a man from whom we can learn.
Rossi writes “Caradache” here, but I am sure Cadarache, which is a French nuclear research center (see http://www-cadarache.cea.fr/index_gb.php) run by the Commissariat Pour l’Energie Atomique (CEA) where they study nuclear fission, nuclear fusion and other alternative energy technologies.
Pierre Clauzon, mentioned by Ross,i is a retired nuclear engineer at the CEA, and also someone who has worked in the cold fusion field.

I just want to give information about CEA ( Commissariat Pour l’Energie Atomique) of Paris, an institution strictly in connection with Areva.
I had the honour to know two nuclear physicists that work there on the LENR, Dr Pierre Clauzon and Dr Jacques Dufour. They made a very good work with the LENR, visited repeatedly my factories in Bologna ( first) and in Ferrara ( eventually) and I learnt many things from both.
I am convinced that from them something important will be born in France in the LENR field. Dr Dufour also made a research on this field for Shell. I am in constant contact with Dr Pierre Clauzon.
By the way: he worked also in the Hot Fusion Caradache concern, but his intellectual honesty allowed him not to hold a hostile position toward my work, but, on the contrary, he has always been positive and collaborative. He also made a bet with some friends of him that within two years the E-Cat will be a commercial breakthrough. Don’t ask me how much he bet: an obscene sum.
Warm Regards to all,
