This product is a short documentary, the goal of which is to underline the importance of promoting basic science research in developing countries1 . It is based on interviews with four different protagonists. There are two main points of view: one is more informal, the other more institutional. The informal point of view is given by two students, Liên Le from Vietnam and Rolando Ramirez from Peru, who just finished the Postgraduate Diploma Programme at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). The one-year programme prepares students from less-developed countries to access prestigious PhD programmes around the globe, often in North America or Europe. They bring a first person experience on the main issue of the product, telling their stories and sharing their concerns and hopes. A broader and more institutional point of view is given by ICTP Director Atish Dabholkar, and the Executive Director of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), Romain Murenzi. They contribute to the documentary through a discourse on the importance on investments in basic science and education, in order to incentivise technological advancements, increased resources and poverty reduction in the developing world.

Abstract

This product is a short documentary, the goal of which is to underline the importance of promoting basic science research in developing countries1 . It is based on interviews with four different protagonists. There are two main points of view: one is more informal, the other more institutional. The informal point of view is given by two students, Liên Le from Vietnam and Rolando Ramirez from Peru, who just finished the Postgraduate Diploma Programme at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). The one-year programme prepares students from less-developed countries to access prestigious PhD programmes around the globe, often in North America or Europe. They bring a first person experience on the main issue of the product, telling their stories and sharing their concerns and hopes. A broader and more institutional point of view is given by ICTP Director Atish Dabholkar, and the Executive Director of The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), Romain Murenzi. They contribute to the documentary through a discourse on the importance on investments in basic science and education, in order to incentivise technological advancements, increased resources and poverty reduction in the developing world.
