ICTP's Physics Without Frontiers program has been on the road since 2008, bringing high-energy physics masterclasses and courses to inspire and engage students in developing countries.  In October 2016, a joint program in Venezuela and Colombia was organized to both explore high energy physics with students and to strengthen connections between institutions in the two countries. The virtual research and learning community of CEVALE2VE was also highlighted, as a network created to stimulate and widen the physics postgraduate education and research in Venezuela and Colombia, as well as to create links with European and North American institutions.
