ICTP's COVID-19 Precautions

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ICTP has decided to cancel all conferences, schools, and workshops taking place on its Trieste campus until mid-June; seminars are canceled until further notice.
More details are available on our Scientific Calendar web-page.

In addition, ICTP has decided to close all of its buildings and disable the badges until 25 March or further notice. If you need to enter a building in order to pick up documents, you should call the Security Guards (040 22 40 606) or send a message to secur_mb@ictp.it in order to request this.

Degree programmes are currently offered only online. Diploma students are encouraged to contact their coordinators, while ICTP PhD students and postdocs should feel free to contact their supervisors with any questions about the situation in Italy and at ICTP.

Until 13 April, all ICTP scientists and staff are teleworking.
