International Affairs

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.

Brazil-U.S. Exchange Program 

APS is accepting proposals from physicists, postdocs and Ph.D. students at U.S. institutions for its exchange program with Brazil. The program supports professors and other working physicists to teach a short course or deliver a lecture series in Brazil. Ph.D. students and postdocs can apply to pursue a variety of opportunities in Brazil, including working in a laboratory or attending a summer institute. The deadline to apply is December 7, 2018.
