The Seventh Forum Physics and Society will take place at the Institute of Physics, London, United Kingdom (, from Thursday 27 until Friday 28 October 2016 with an optional visit to the Science Museum, South Kensington, London on Wednesday 26 October.

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.
Topics which will be discussed:

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?

The meeting will welcome Keynote and Invited Speakers.

We look forward to seeing you at the next VII EPS Forum Physics and Society and welcoming you at the Institute of Physics in London.
