Cutting edge research, education and training
For more than 45 years, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a driving force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world.
In 2014, ICTP will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. More information about events to mark the milestone will be posted on the ICTP 50th Anniversary Webpages.
Founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP seeks to accomplish its mandate by providing scientists from developing countries with the continuing education and skills that they need to enjoy long and productive careers. ICTP has been a major force in stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world.
ICTP alumni serve as professors at major universities, chairpersons of academic departments, directors of research centres and ministers of science and technology in nations throughout the developing world. Many of them have been recognized in their own countries and internationally for their contributions to science and science policy. The impact of ICTP extends well beyond the Centre's facilities to virtually every corner of the Earth
Scientists and students from all countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA, may attend the School. As the Workshop will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of that language. Although the main purpose of the Centre is to help research workers from developing countries through a programme of training activities within a framework of international cooperation, a limited number of students from developed countries are also welcome to attend. As a rule travel and subsistence expenses for participants should be borne by their home Institutions. Every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare (or at least half fare). However, limited funds are available for some participants who are nationals of, and working in, a developing country, and who are not more than 45 years old. Such support is available only for those attending the entire activity. There is no registration fee.
