UNU Rector visited ICTP

Prof. K.R. Sreenivasan, Mrs. and Prof. K. Osterwalder

Professor K. Osterwalder, the Rector of the United Nations University, visited ICTP and met the Director on 15 May, 2008. UNU is an international network of scholars which serves as a think tank for the United Nations System. The University's headquarters is located in Tokyo, Japan. Since 1980, UNU has collaborated with ICTP and has co-sponsored the Microprocessor Laboratory. Professor Osterwalder is a mathematical physicist. During the meeting Sreenivasan presented ICTP to Osterwalder and explored possible avenues of cooperation. In particular, it was suggested that ICTP could formally complement the UN University in physical and mathematical sciences. Osterwalder agreed to put it to his advisory board for consideration.
