ICTP and the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (INdAM) have launched a joint program of “Research in Pairs” aimed to fund research project in Mathematics to be carried out in collaboration between mathematicians from developing countries and INdAM members either at ICTP in Trieste or in any research unit of INdAM see the list here.
Applications must be submitted using the online system https://e-applications.ictp.it/applicant/login/MPR19; the deadline is 31 December 2018.
Applicants must be citizens of a developing country (the UN-maintained country list is here) and must have worked in a developing country for at least 6 months in the previous calendar year. After filling the personal profile, the applicant must provide the following information:
- a detailed research project (between 2000 and 3000 characters);
- a precise working plan, with timing and places where the proposed project would be carried out;
- a detailed breakdown of costs, including the requested amount and a description of possible other sources of funding. The maximum amount of a request is fixed in Euros 4000.
The applicant can indicate up to two “team members” from a developing country (not necessarily the same as the applicant’s) and up to two INdAM members, who are inscribed in the list of one of the national research groups GNAMPA, GNCS, GNFM, GNSAGA.
Once the application is completed the INdAM partners will be contacted electronically to agree, fill in their scientific profile, and possibly add further information. Applicants are encouraged to coordinate the present research project with the participation in other scientific activities such as schools and workshops either run by ICTP or INdAM. At the end of the project all members of the team will be required to write a final report.
