2nd IAP Young Scientists Conference


It is with great pleasure that we provide you with the list of the selected IAP Young Scientists for 2009. We had a very diverse and dynamic set of nominations from IAP Members and the level of competence was high making it an difficult task for the selection committee to draw up a shortlist. Thank you for your input.

The young scientists have now been invited by IAP and WEF to participate in the 2nd IAP Young Scientists Conference which will take place in conjunction with the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2009, in September, in
Dalian China
. Some young scientists have also been selected from the 2008 participants and have agreed to return with the role of Young Scientist and Young Mentor, assisting the new intake in establishing contact with the WEF participants and making the most of the events organized during the official Forum. The IAP Conference will consist of two sessions:

1. Science education to create the innovators of the future.

2.Research Priorities and Government/Business/Academy Partnership to Address Societal Needs Through Innovation (e.g. in Aging, Food/Water Security, Energy technologies, Healthcare)

We are in contact with the Young Scientists directly and look very much forward to welcoming them in Dalian. IAP plans to award five grants of a max. of 10,000
US $ for each grant, to young scientists who submit a proposal for a research partnership with one of the business entrepreneurs they have the opportunity of encountering at the Conference in Dalian

A number of young scientists working in top research institutes in
China have also been identified by the Chinese Academy
of Sciences and have been invited as observers to the event.

Please feel free to share information and brief the young scientists on IAP and its objectives before their trip in order for them to gain a better understanding of the Network.

With thanks to all IAP Members once again for participating in this initiative:
