Fostering advanced studies in physics and mathematics

ICTP supports research groups in several areas of physical sciences and mathematics. From its early focus on theoretical high energy physics, the Centre's research areas have evolved in response to the needs of physicists and mathematicians from disadvantaged countries, and now include the following areas:

  • High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (HECAP)
  • Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics (CMSP)
  • Mathematics (MATH)
  • Earth System Physics (ESP)
  • Quantitative Life Sciences (QLS)
  • Science, Technology and Innovation Unit (STI)
