Scientific Outreach

ICTP has a long tradition of scientific capacity building in developing countries. Over the last few decades, ICTP has supported numerous activities throughout the developing world, including training programmes, networks, and the establishment of affiliate centres.

Many of the Centre's activities in developing countries are coordinated by the Office of External Activities.

ICTP now has partner institutes in Brazil, Mexico and Rwanda, with an additional one opening soon in Beijing, China.

The Physics Without Frontiers program brings science to university students throughout the developing world.

ICTP's Science Dissemination Unit (SDU) researches and develops innovative, low-cost information and communication technology solutions for developing countries.
