// Promoting Physics Worldwide
There is a significant untapped potential of physicists that come from developing countries. Strong young students may lack exposure to physics and physics research, they may not be aware of opportunities for further study, and governments and institutions may not fully recognise the importance of investing into the fundamental sciences.
Promoting physics worldwide, and in particular in developing countries, can play a key role in promoting the growth and development of scientific culture. Our scientific community must support education and the development of research worldwide. This talk will discuss the respective issues encountered by countries in the development of physics research are presented along with how our community can support their endeavour with some focus on the ICTPs Physics Without Frontiers program.
// What is the Schuster Colloquium?
The Schuster Colloquium takes place about half a dozen times per academic year and is a School-wide event targeting everyone ranging from the undergraduate to the staff level. The aim is to inspire us about Physics while learning about exciting new scientific developments, regardless of one's area of expertise. The talks are therefore meant to be accessible to everyone, and students are particularly encouraged to attend.
