Like many scientists at the ICTP I am keenly involved in the global mission of the ICTP to promote fundamental science in (so-called) developing countries. This includes the organisation of research and training activities and projects. I have also trained, supervised and/or mentored many post-graduate and post-doctoral physicists from developing countries, many of whom are actively working as researchers in the field of particle physics or in related areas. I am one of the founders of the African School of Fundamental Physics and its Applications (ASP) -- which is a three week graduate summer school on "fundamental physics" which takes place in a different African country every two years.
