ICTP has enjoyed the support and partnership of the IAEA from the Centre's very beginning in the early 1960s.
In the early years of ICTP, the IAEA's involvement shaped the Centre in numerous ways: contributing US $55,000 to the original ICTP budget; defining the original research focus of nuclear, plasma, and elementary particle physics; and providing staff and running the administration of the Centre until the mid-1990s. Although ICTP is now administered by UNESCO, the IAEA continues to be deeply involved in the Centre's international programmes.
Because it enjoys close ties and enormous credibility throughout the developing world, ICTP, in a strategic partnership with the IAEA, serves as a unique intellectual conduit on subjects related to nuclear science and its applications. Working jointly, ICTP and the IAEA offer a variety of activities in support of research, education, training, and capacity building in developing countries, including training courses and workshops as well as fellowship programmes for young scientists. These activities focus on interdisciplinary applications of nuclear science and technology in areas crucial to socio-economical development such as energy, health, agriculture, industry, and environment protection. ICTP and the IAEA are also involved in joint activities to strengthen nuclear safety and security in developing countries.
Cooperation is carried out through the following activities:
All of these activities ensure that the IAEA and ICTP's historic ties - and their commitment to "Atoms for Peace" - will be further strengthened in the future.
