The Forum on International Physics (FIP) is a voluntary association of the American Physical Society (APS) members, who are interested in advancing the knowledge of physics and its diffusion by fostering cooperation and communication among physicists of all countries. The FIP organizes focused sessions at APS meetings and the PHYSICS MATTERS monthly colloquia series as a “Physics for Development” initiative in COVID times. The FIP also distributes nominations for Distinguished Students travel grants, APS fellowships, and a Wheatley Award.
The unique strength of the FIP lies in the openness of its agenda, which reflects the grassroots origin of this Forum.
This talk will describe the FIP program and will present possible synergies with the program of the African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications.
