THANKS TO ALL OF YOU
•Why a new conference in this domain?
•Collective ambition for solidarity, physics is actually well behind other scientific communities
•Counterbalancing the lack of funding for development due to bad economics in Europe environment
•State of the art of international cooperation : SESAME , DESERTEC, UNESCO, ICTP, IUPAP, EU, CERN, African PHysical Society, African Laser Center
•Recycling recent technological breakthroughs for use in development
•Publicizing creative ideas like component mining
•Showing the impact of science for daily life
•New ways to think about scientific instrumentation : generic instruments
•Creation of an African Instrumentation Award
•Making use of internet : Open source aspects and crowd sourcing
•Creating new income opportunities for PhD students in developing countries through creation of small enterprises and “startup”.
•Putting together scientists, NGO’s, geeks, hackers, retired scientists, technicians, teachers. Strong multidisciplinary networks are needed.
•Putting together experience in development of scientists from European countries and achieving a critical mass to get a better cooperation.
- All starts from excellence in science and technological knowledge, then :
Applied physics developments could follow
As well as use of technology achievements for other purposes
Making conditions for unlashing creativity
- The following applies to basic education, high schools, universities to research labs;
A strong dialog between north and south is necessary since actions should be based by taking realities into account.
