ICTP Senior Associateship

Dr. T. Pathmathas has been selected as a Senior Associate of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) from January 2023 to December 2028. The Associateship Scheme is one of ICTP’s oldest programmes that provides support for active scientists from developing countries to maintain long-term, formal contact with the Centre. The programme supports the visits of scientists to ICTP, exposing them to the most modern aspects of their scientific fields. In return, the Associates are expected to play a major role in building their scientific communities, enhancing physics and mathematics education at all levels, and planning research projects related to the specific needs of their home regions. Senior Associates have at their disposal up to the sum of Euro 8,000 (LKR 2.8 million) to be spent over the above six-year period. These funds can be made available for travel costs and any other support during the visit to ICTP at Trieste based on the ICTP rules.

The faculty congratulates Dr. T. Pathmathas for winning the prestigious Senior Associateship.
