The new ICTP – SEENET-MTP Project NT-03 “Cosmology – Classical and Quantum Challenges”

We are pleased to announce that the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), and its Office of External Activities (OAE) has approved the new project NT-03 “Cosmology – Classical and Quantum Challenges” to support research and training program of the SEENET-MTP Network. The grant will be used for the exchange visits of the Network members in 2017.

Funding of the project is approved on a yearly basis and up to a maximum period of three years, subject to the positive evaluation of progress and annual reports.

The OEA provides support to cover the travel expenses of scientists who belong to the Network to visit other member Institutions and contributes towards their living expenses.

The project NT-03 is the continuation of the ICTP – SEENET-MTP project PRJ-09 “Cosmology and Strings” (2009-2016).

For more information and for exchange proposals contact the representatives of your Institutions in the Network Committees or the SEENET-MTP office ()

e-EPS Reports about EPS and SEENET-MTP Network Cooperation

In the latest issue of e-EPS news (June 2017) an article about cooperation between EPS and SEENET-MTP is published.

The cooperation between EPS and the South-Eastern European Network in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics (SEENET-MTP) was established almost a decade ago and was further reinforced at the Kick-off Meeting of the EPS Committee of European Integration (EPS-CEI) during the Balkan Workshop BW2013. In accordance with the accepted strategies, EPS-CEI and SEENET-MTP collaborated in domains of mutual interest and activities –supporting exchange of physicists and physics research across South-Eastern and Central-Eastern Europe and training of the new generation of physicists, supported at a pan-European level.
