ISP aims at assisting developing countries to strengthen their domestic research capacity within the chemical, physical and the mathematical sciences. ISP focuses on least developed countries.
More information about the organisation, approach, etc can be found via "About ISP" in the top menu, and also in the ISP Strategy Plan 2013-2017.
