A unique opportunity for exchanges between young researchers, world-renowned physicists and industrial leaders
The EPS Forum is a three-day international meeting of interest for all European researchers, PhD students and Post Docs who wish to be introduced to exciting research opportunities in large companies and start-ups, and encourage a dialogue with representatives of the industry sector. It will also host a general conference in physics on various topics, addressed from a more fundamental point of view introduced by high-profile scientists. Round tables will be dedicated to societal issues.
Day 1 – “Physics Mets Industry” (March 25th)
Day 1 will be dedicated to the employment of early career physicists in Europe around these different topics with direct exchanges with CEO, directors and engineers of major industrial companies in these fields. Involving EPS Young Minds Members and EPS Associate members, Day 1 will bring together early careers researchers, interns, PhD students, and Postdocs with physics-based companies in order to discuss exciting research challenges and career opportunities in industry.
Day 2 – “Fundamental Physics” (March 26th)
Day 2 will look at the scientific and societal challenges facing the physics community. The latest achievements in physics will be highlighted by the most outstanding physicists in Europe and beyond, including a strong participation from the EPS Member Societies and Divisions and Groups.
Day 3 (March 27th)
Day 3 will be devoted to the regular business of the EPS Council, open to EPS Council Delegates only.
Guests can look forward to plenary talks by Nobel Laureates Klaus von Klitzing, Anne L'Huillier and Stefan Hell.

Freie Universität Berlin as a Host for the EPS Forum
The event will be hosted over three days at the Henry Ford Building of the Free University of Berlin. The EPS Forum 2023 was co-organized by two physics research groups from Freie Universität Berlin:
Koch Research Group
The theoretical research group led by Professor Dr. Christiane Koch explores quantum dynamics and quantum control molecules and condensed matter systems with an AMO-like structure. The group actively participates in several collaborative research centers and in the Dahlem Center for Complex Quantum Systems. Professor Dr. Christiane Koch also heads the "Quantum Optics and Photonics" division of the German Physical Society.
Bolotin Research Group
The experimental research group led by Professor Dr. Kirill Bolotin explores quantum nanoelectronics of 2D materials. The mission of the Bolotin lab is to develop the tool to turn the experimental “knobs” in the Hamiltonians of 2D materials and to study the resulting physical phenomena. In addition to the own laboratories in the Department of Physics, the group works in the labs of SupraFAB and is involved in several special research areas.
About the EPS
The European Physical Society advocates research in physics and its contribution to the economic, technological, social and cultural development in Europe. Representing 42 national physical societies and 130.000 researchers, the EPS promotes excellence in physics research and cooperation with physics-based industries, education and student mobility, publication and outreach. The EPS awards highly prestigious prizes to outstanding researchers.
