Description

The ICTP Physics Without Frontiers (PWF) programme works with volunteer physicists to inspire, train and motivate physics and mathematics university students worldwide with some focus on science and technology lagging countries. The aim is to promote physics research and help build the next generation of scientists. Each project is unique, developed with the country's specific needs in mind. The educational resources, tools and approach used in the HEP chapter of PWF will be discussed, highlighting issues encountered, and the achievements and impact.
