Meeting of IUPAP C13

The IUPAP Commission on Physics for Development meets at the ICTP

The annual meeting of the IUPAP Commission on Physics for Development (C13) took place at the ICTP last August. Among the participants were Annick Suzor-Weiner (chairperson and Vice President of the IUPAP Executive Council), Robert Kirby-Harris (Chief Executive of the IOP) and the ICTP Director, K.R. Sreenivasan. IUPAP and  ICTP share common interests in promoting the exchange of information and views among the members of the international scientific community.  One of the aims of the meeting was to discuss possible common initiatives. The effectiveness of a combined action and the increased opportunities offered by a closer collaboration were unanimously recognized during the meeting while, in view of the forthcoming collaboration agreement between IUPAP and UNESCO, an active role of advice and cooperation was advocated for the ICTP.
The innovative issue of the low-cost high-level technology, with interesting potential for Physics in Developing Countries, was presented at the meeting by François Piuzzi. He discussed the matter also with several other interested ICTP scientists during his visit.
