ISP core program
The core program at ISP consists of three sub-programs within physics, chemistry and mathematics. The collaboration are mainly of two types:
- with a research group at a university department
- with a network of research groups at different departments, usually in different countries in a region.
ISP focuses its activities on providing assistance to create viable and independent research teams of an international standard. In the countries with which ISP has cooperation, physics/chemistry/mathematics are normally weak and in a stage of development. In the support given, ISP also assists the departments in creating or strengthening their MSc and/or PhD programmes.
All activities to be supported are proposed by the groups in the respective countries and should be in line with the plans of the department, and follow national priorities.
Each of the three sub-programs has a reference group, that assists ISP in the scientific evaluations of the applications for ISP funding and acts as an advisory committee in scientific matters.
