Office of International Affairs
In this era of globalization, international issues cut across essentially all aspects of the APS and physics community.
Science: International R&D collaborations are on the rise; countries are partnering to build big facilities.
Industry: Companies are increasingly multinational; US companies are moving R&D facilities offshore.
Education: The US competes for the world's best talent; it needs to attract and retain first-rate students and scientists.
Policy: National S&T policies are affected by global events; federal R&D funding influences US participation in international large-scale collaborations.
