Description

In the framework of the ASP2012, we propose a special forum/outreach day addressed to the scientific personnel and the government officials of Ghana.
Throughout the 3-week long school of physics, students are learning variety of topics, including Theoretical Subatomic Physics, Experimental Subatomic Physics, Accelerators and Technology, Information Technology and the GRID. As a complement to this event, we propose to take the opportunity provided by the key-visiting experts to connect with scientific experts and Ghanaian Government. There will hopefully develop pockets of capacity from which the HEP footprint in Africa can be expanded. During the Forum Day, we would like to:

1) discuss the education and capacity building in Ghana. The strategic planning on the local and central governments of Ghana towards capacity building.

2) have a poster presentation by the students of ASP2012.
