ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) is a new South American regional center for theoretical physics created in a collaboration of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) with the São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the São Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). The ICTP-SAIFR is located at the campus of the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) in the city of São Paulo and activities include seminars, minicourses, schools and workshops. The center has funding for short-term and long-term visitors as well as for postdoctoral and permanent researchers.
