From 02 to 07 Nov, 2015, FIMO’s researcher (Mr. Pham Ngoc Hai) has participated the Conference on Future of Earth-Space Science and Education (Future ESSE) in the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Miramare – Trieste, Italy. The workshop is organized by The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).
For more than 50 years, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a driving force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world.
Founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP seeks to accomplish its mandate by providing scientists from developing countries with the continuing education and skills that they need to enjoy long and productive careers. ICTP has been a major force in stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world.
More than 40 scientists: distinguished scientists, Scientists and MSc or PhD students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA who are working on Earth-Space Science, are participated the Conference. Each day of conference is dedicated to the specific theme:
- Future Earth and sustainability,
- The world without disasters Climate change,
- Future generations Earth, space, and planets
- Future geoscience and education in the developing world.
A 5-day brainstorming Conference were organized to: (i) analyze the current state of Earth system sciences, geoscience and education with special emphasis on the developing countries; (ii) discuss scientific contribution to major challenges the societies face: disaster risk, climatic and environmental changes, depletion of mineral resources and others; (iii) promote integrated disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary science and education of the planet Earth and its space environment; (iv) develop a link between geosciences and other natural and social sciences and to promote this at the educational level; and (v) build capacities in economically-less developed countries in Earth and space sciences.
