1. This year's Homi Bhabha lecture series (Score: 1.0000)
I was pleasantly surprised when I was invited to be a part of the Homi Bhabha lecture series by the president of the IPA. The lecture series involves eminent physicists from India and the UK giving lectures in the host country in alternative years. Examples of basic research in physics, chemistry, medicine, biology, philology, archaeology, and technology were presented and their origin in curiosity and desire to understand the world around us. My lecture at the University of Birmingham, ...
2. Entrepreneurship workshops for scientists and engineers (Score: 1.0000)
The entrepreneurship workshops run by the IOP and its partners focus on bridging the gap between science and business. This shift requires additional knowledge and skills that are not automatically included in the training of scientists and engineers; our entrepreneurship workshops actively address the knowledge gap. More detailed information on the entrepreneurship workshops, specifically reports from previous workshops and the IOP publication ntitled from science to business can be found ...

7. Another round of practical physics teacher training (Score: 1.0000)
IOP volunteers Mike Branfield and Gerry Blake ran further successful practical-physics teacher-training in Tanzania this July. Overall, the training aims to address a misconception commonly held by teachers in Tanzania that it isn't possible to teach practical physics without equipped laboratories. Further teacher-training is on the horizon for 2017 with volunteers establishing more training centres to increase the IOP's reach across Tanzania.
8. Workshop on Nanotechnology: Making the leap towards Commercialisation (Score: 1.0000)
The British Council workshop in collaboration with the Institute of Physics, UK and National Chemical Laboratory (NCL) was held in January 2008. The workshop was aimed to demystify some of the apparent barriers and to provide a platform where UK and Indian experts can exchange and share information, develop an understanding of common issues and build appropriate capacities to deliver marketable products. The Institute is a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 293851) and Scotland (no....
