ICTP & Italy

Partners in Development


ICTP would not be where it is today without the enduring support of the Government of Italy.  The country's investment in ICTP has ensured that scientists in developing countries are given unique educational and research opportunities in many areas of basic and applied sciences, including theoretical physics, mathematics, Earth system physics, and quantitative life sciences. Through ICTP, Italian funding--together with support from the UN agencies UNESCO and the IAEA--has benefitted more than 140,000 scientists throughout the developing world who have attended conferences and workshops, formed research collaborations, pursued doctoral degrees, and maintained connections with ICTP's world-wide network of top scientists.
