ICTP-SAIFR was founded thanks to the collaboration of ICTP and Institute for Theoretical Physics of São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the São Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). It is a regional hub for local scientific development and a focal point of fundamental research in theoretical physics in South America. It plays a crucial role as a place where students and scientists from all over the continent can come together for activities, research and learning opportunities. It is active in cutting-edge research in physics and mathematics, and has a strong inclination for innovative and multidisciplinary research at the intersection of physics, mathematics and biology.
