Addressing the international conference on physics organized by Nepal Physics Society in Kathmandu Tuesday, Klitzing said moral science and education play an important role in the development of a country, and which, in turn, is integrated with the international community.
President Dr Ram Baran Yadav, who inaugurated the 4-day conference, said in his opening address that application of the methods of physics is essential for eradication of poverty, adding that studies of science, being interwoven with human society, cannot be isolated.
Vice chancellor of the Tribhuvan University Madhav Sharma flayed the government for not giving much priority to this important stream of science, which, according to him, has led to failure of Nepal in producing top scientists competing at the international level.
The four-day conference is being attend by over 120 scientists from 30 countries including US, Japan, Germany, Pakistan, Taiwan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. The scientists will exchange their experiences and debate on new researches.
