The Institute of Physics has recently conducted a study of the impact of physics to the economy in Northern Ireland, looking at significant areas such as jobs and exports.

Some key findings from the report, which was carried out by the Centre for Economic and Business Research, include

* More than 60,000 jobs in physics based industries,a 7.4% share of total employment in NI

* Direct GVA is £3.2 bn, a 9.7% share of the NI economy.

* Total impact is worth more than £7bn annually

Such findings highlight the impact of physics across many sectors of the economy and the importance of having highly trained physicists to support these industries.

The report will be launched by Naomi Long, MLA, chair of the all-party group on science and technology in the NI Assembly.
