Conclusions

Swiss WYP2005 is on good tracks

but still…

problems to find financial support

and some delays in the preparation!

slide15

WYP2005 - Goals

  • Raise public awareness for Physics and physical sciences
  • Stop decrease of physics students numbers in High Schools and Universities
  • Need to outline
    • Great contributions of Physics in Science and Technology and its impact
  • on society
    • Interdisciplinary role of Physics and incubator for new emerging fields
    • Great challenges of Physics for the 21st century: energy, environment, public health
    • Physics in education
    • Physics in developing countries and physics for development
    • Women in Physics
    • The cultural heritage of Physics, from the Egyptian and ancient Greek legacy

to modern physics

slide16
