At the ICTP East African Institute for Fundamental Research (EAIFR), the focus is on carrying out research and making discoveries for African development and advancement, while investing equal energy into training others to do the same through our MSc and PhD programmes as well as the many short courses and workshops that we hold throughout the year. Our resident scientific staff members are dynamic scientists who are very active in the international scene in their respective fields. Senior scientists from ICTP-Trieste and other parts of the world are also involved in the teaching and training of students in all our programmes and at all levels.
