International (Selected) Efforts of Dr. Milton Dean Slaughter

Chair, Edward Bouchet Abdus Salam Institute (EBASI) of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) (2009-Present).

The First EBASI Conference (Held at the ICTP, Trieste, Italy)

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the Edward Bouchet Abdus Salam Institute (EBASI) signed on 11 February 2009 by ICTP Director Professor K.R. Sreenivasan and Professor Milton D. Slaughter, founding EBASI Council Member and Chairman.  This document formalizes mechanisms which allow ICTP and EBASI to participate jointly in synergistic scientific and technical collaborations among physical scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and technologists from America and Europe and their counterparts from developing countries, especially Africa.  The collaborative venture established by this document provides for comprehensive and multi-disciplinary programs designed:

  • To enhance the impact of science and technology on the sustainable development of the countries on the African continent;
  • To increase the technical manpower pool working in Africa today by facilitating the training and education of African graduate students; and
  • To support the further sustainable development of both academic and public institutions that focus on physical science and high-technology.
