The IAPS School Day Grant 2016

NC Macedonia 2
We are repeating the IAPS School Day!

10 November is an occasion for you to spread interest in physics and this year’s theme is Environment and Energy. Around the world, members like you will organise activities at schools, universities, and other venues in order to ensure that we will have a new generation of physics students. For inspiration, this is what it looked like last year.

To help you in this endavour, we have decided to make a dedicated School Day Grant. Each member committee can receive up to 500 € with a total of 1500 € given out by IAPS.

The deadline is 19 October.

So do you have an idea for a fun experiment in a local school? Then join us!

Questions are welcome and can be sent to: edu(at)iaps(dot)info

We hope to see you!

Results of the AGM 2016 in Luqa, Malta!

Dear Members of IAPS!

This years ICPS is already over for a couple of weeks now. We hope you had a great time at ICPS 2016 in Malta!
As always the AGM took place during the conference, this year on August 14 in Luqa. You can now find the minutes in the IAPS owncloud folder (IAPS_Member/AGM 2016/Results). We also want to thank Siddarth Mahesh for being the secretary and Tamas Almos Vami for charing the meeting.

The discussed documents, including the regulations, this years IMAP grant, Code of Conduct, PLANCKS General Rules and the IAPS reimbursement guideline, were updated as voted on and are also available on the owncloud and on the IAPS website.

Furthermore the IAPS Terms and Conditions were introduced in the AGM. Those should be included in all registrations for IAPS events and can be found on the website as well.

If you have any comments please send them to the EC (ec(at)iaps(dot)info).

Introducing the IAPS Contact Network!

As you know, IAPS offers grants, volunteering work, and opportunities to gain experiences in an international non-governmental, non-profit association, and help to its members.
To help each student interested in an exchange or starting at a new university, IAPS is establishing a Contact Network. The goal is to have at least one student at each university, willing to help others with information on the university, city, or country. At the same time. it’s always nice to already know a person in the city you move to, e.g. to find good places to hang out.
If you are interested, and we hope you are, please send an email with your name and university to secretary@iaps.info. Only your university will be published, and your name and email address will be provided to an interested student on request to the same email address listed above.
We are looking forward to having a huge network and help as many students as possible.
If you do have questions, suggestions, or comments about the Network, please do let us know.
