ABSTRACT:

This one week residential workshop on 'Economic Development for Physicists in Developing Countries' is designed for physicists in developing countries who would like to learn
entrepreneurial/commercialisation skills. The development of entrepreneurial skills and attitudes now form a vital part of the education programme. The aim of the workshop is to foster the culture of enterprise that will help physicists in their careers help them make positive contribution to the economy of their countries.

Vital aspects of the workshop include: how to spot opportunities, identification of market need, how to protect intellectual property, need for confidentiality, patenting, how to bring developments to market, licensing, raising capital, funding, venture capitalist route, legal issues, incubation, etc. This workshop will also provide delegates an opportunity to engage with successful role models who are expert in their field and to discuss real life issues, barriers and challenges. A number of case studies will be discussed providing an excellent opportunity to understand the issues involved and to identify the best practice from the example. Various transferable skills like negotiation,
interpersonal and communication can be learned from the group activities and networking.

The workshop is organized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, the Institute of Physics and the European Physical Society.
