International Center for Theoretical Physics calls application for ICTP Prize 2020.

ICTP is now accepting nominations for young researchers from developing countries for the 2020 ICTP Prize. The prize recognizes outstanding and original contributions to physics and includes a sculpture, a certificate, and a cash prize. Past winners include Ashoke Sen (1989), the Indian theoretical physicist who was awarded the 2012 Fundamental Physics Prize, and former ICTP Director Fernando Quevedo (1998).

Founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP seeks to accomplish its mandate by providing scientists from developing countries with the continuing education and skills that they need to enjoy long and productive careers. ICTP has been a major force in stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world.

ICTP alumni serve as professors at major universities, chairpersons of academic departments, directors of research centres and ministers of science and technology in nations throughout the developing world. Many of them have been recognized in their own countries and internationally for their contributions to science and science policy. The impact of ICTP extends well beyond the Centre’s facilities to virtually every corner of the Earth
