IAPS turns 30!

Today, 12th September 2017 is IAPS’ birthday. The institution which you call come to know and love is celebrating today to mark its 3rd decade since its founding. IAPS was founded because an enterprising group of Hungarian physicists, in the mix of the cold war wanted to look forward to a bright future where physics students of any nationality, race or creed could get meet and discuss freely. A direction at that time the world was not heading towards. They founded the first ICPS with this goal in 1986 and a year later in 1987 IAPS was born.

Since then IAPS has grown to include more the 40 countries worldwide and has a wide program of events. From outreach in the International School day to excursions such as iaps2cern. From competitions like PLANCKS to the flagship event that started it all ICPS.

Join us today in celebrating the work IAPS has don’t over the past 30 years, which we hope to continue and expand for decades more!

Interested in working with IAPS?

We are currently sending out calls to join IAPS “Subbies” and volenteer comittees.
An organisation as big as IAPS cannot be run by 9 people, which is why we rely on people joining our subbies to help keeps the cogs turning and IAPS running smoothly.

By joining a subbie you will have the opportunity to work closely with the respective EC member to help coordinate what needs to be done, whether it’s helping to coordinate events, generating material for the newsletter and jIAPS, helping to reach members across the globe or having fun with grant proposals and sponsorships.

More specific call for each induvial subbie can be found in the volenteer section of the website, or below for convience!
