Abstract: This review briefly summarises the history of the hydrogen materials community as an important part of the World Hydrogen Movement. It analysis the history and current status of the interrelation between the Hydrogen Energy (HE) and Hydrogen Materials (HM) communities. During the last 15 years, great advances in this cooperation have come about, thanks to the thorough activities of the Permanent Working International Scientific Committee on Hydrogen Treatment of Materials and the international conferences |Hydrogen economy and hydrogen treatment of materials| under the auspices of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE). The conclusion is that promoting this cooperation will be the responsibility of the World Hydrogen Movement in the 21st century, in general, and of nuclear HE technology, in particular.

Keywords: hydrogen energy; hydrogen economy; hydrogen movement; hydrogen materials community; nuclear hydrogen production.
