The final two days will feature a short course on entrepreneurship for physicists.

Travel support is available for graduate students, postdocs, early-career scientists, and scientists in need of financial aid who are attending from regions with developing or emerging economies.

More information on the Industrial Physics Forum, including information on speakers and applying for financial aid, can be found on the conference website.
