M19.00004. Fundamental physics and accelerator science in developing countries
Presented by: Christine Darve
Education and industrialization are essential to promote positive developments in the least developed countries. The recent evolution of technologies and ICT open the doors to innovative way to support education in developing countries. To enhance the existing African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications (ASP), Massive Open On-line Courses (MOOC) have been prepared and implemented to teach accelerator physics and technologies. The goal of those initiatives is to catalyze the development of world-class institutions through the production of high–quality scientists and engineers to stimulate economic growth and employment creation. Pursuant to this goal, the objective is to produce the next generation of African scientists and engineers by training them in the necessary technical, entrepreneurial and leadership capacities to solve African problems thus contributing to economic and social transformation.
