TASK 2 

Colloquium Programme

Establish a Colloquium Programme for each region to recruit new AdLS and crystallography users.

The Colloquium Programme will dispatch experienced AdLS users and crystallographers to universities and other institutions and private enterprises for 3-day visits to give presentations on the capabilities of AdLSs and crystallography and engage in discussions on how they can enhance researchers' investigations and offer career opportunities for university students. While in a given location, the lecturers will visit government officials and secondary schools to inform officials, teachers and students of the successes of AdLS and crystallographic sciences. Given the Zika, Ebola and HIV crises in the various regions, the Colloquium Programme should be extremely attractive to biological infectious disease researchers and governmental ministries of science, technology, health and education. The Colloquium Programme will serve as a recruiting tool for new AdLS users and crystallographers.

The ICTP, with assistance from the ICSU Regional Offices, will manage the programme, while maintaining close communication with the EC to ensure that the most appropriate researchers are served. SESAME will manage the Middle East programme. Each speaker will normally spend 3 days at the host institution engaging in discussions and visiting government officials and schools.
