Fostering advanced studies in physics and mathematics



ICTP is an institution that is run by scientists for scientists. The Centre supports research groups in several areas of physical sciences and mathematics.

The bulk of the research at the Centre is carried out by the staff of these scientific sections and their consultants, long-term and short-term visitors engaged in independent or collaborative research, a relatively large cadre of post-doctoral fellows, as well as the Associates. The scientific sections are also responsible for organising high-level training courses, workshops, conferences and topical meetings throughout the year.
