The TRIL Programme offers scientists from developing countries the opportunity to undertake training and research in an Italian laboratory in different branches of the physical sciences.
The aim of the programme is to promote, through direct contacts and side-by-side high-level research, collaborations between the Italian scientific community and individuals, groups and institutions in developing countries. This programme thus addresses an important aspect of the mission of ICTP, namely to help form and strengthen a permanent scientific expertise in developing countries, cognisant of local needs and resources and of the frontiers of science and technology, and to provide support towards a sustainable capacity in basic and applied research that can help their nations' progress.
TRIL fellows are matched to laboratories that best meet their needs. Over the years, the TRIL experience has benefitted hundreds of developing world scientists, boosting their research careers through collaboration with world-class scientists and the latest equipment, and exposing them to Italian culture as well.
