The CIMPA-ICTP Fellowship Program 2022 is being offered by the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Centre for Pure and Applied Mathematics. The fellowship program allows scholars in mathematics from poor countries to travel to Europe for at least six weeks to collaborate with a colleague.

During this time, the researchers are expected to collaborate on a well-supported research project, mostly at the European colleague’s institute.

The laureate must-visit CIMPA on the Université Côte d’Azur campus or ICTP in Trieste to record/broadcast a mini-course on mathematics at the master’s/beginning of PhD level (about 8 hours, in French or English).

This is a significant component of the application since the lectures will serve as a model course for other students interested in learning about this subject. As a result, it must be cooked with considerable care.

The International Centre for Theoretic Physics is a non-profit organization dedicated to theoretical physics (ICTP)

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a driving factor behind international initiatives to promote scientific capabilities in underdeveloped countries for more than 50 years.

ICTP, which was founded in 1964 by Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, aims to fulfill its mission by providing scientists from developing nations with the ongoing education and skills they need to have long and fruitful careers. ICTP has been a crucial player in reversing the developing world’s scientific brain drain.

The CIMPA/ICTP Fellowship Program’s Goals and Benefits

The greatest amount of assistance available is 10,000 euros. This should cover all of the laureate’s expenditures (transportation, lodging, insurance, PCR test, quarantine, and so forth) during the whole visit, whether alone or with other assistance. The sum is decided by the laureate’s length, location, and activities, as well as travel expenses. It can only be used to pay for her or his own expenses.

Qualifications for the CIMPA/ICTP Fellowship Program

The applicant is a researcher with a PhD in mathematics who is based in a developing country at the time of application and whose passport indicates a developing country nationality.

The European colleague is a mathematician with a PhD who will be stationed in one of the following countries for the duration of the candidate’s stay: Germany, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, or Switzerland.

The laureate and his or her collaborator may offer to spend one to two weeks of their cooperation at one of the partner centers: CRM, CIRM, ICTP, or MFO. In this case, CIMPA, ICTP, or the partner center will cover the cost of the colleague’s stay (but not the travel) in addition to the financial assistance already provided.

The laureate may schedule visits to other laboratories or centers (not limited to the above countries but within Europe) to meet with other colleagues or attend courses or conferences in addition to his or her collaborative research project. This “non-collaboration” time will not exceed a quarter of the total visit time.
