IMPORTANT NEWS: The FPS2016 is now scheduled on 1 DAY ONLY, the 27th October 2016 and registration fees are now FREE (dinner excluded to pay on-line 50€)
26 (optional) - 27 October 2016 - Institute of Physics, London, United Kingdom

The VII Forum will focus on the perennial problem that is faced by many member countries, namely the lack of girls studying physics beyond age 18 and the lack of women working, particularly at the higher levels, in physics related careers.
1. How different is the diversity problem in physics across Europe?
2. How can employers gain business advantage by recruiting and retaining a more diverse workforce?
3. How can informal learning encourage under represented groups to study physics?
4. How important are families and schools in supporting under represented groups into physics careers?
Discussion of recommendations of good practice to share across EPS member institutions.
