The ICTP Prize is awarded annually to young scientists from developing countries who have made outstanding and original contributions to physics.

The 2022 ICTP Prize is awarded to two outstanding Iranian cosmologists: Prof. Shant Baghram of the Sharif University of Technology and Mohammad Hossein Namjoo of the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences. The two share the prize for their pioneering contributions to developing robust theoretical, computational and statistical frameworks to compare theoretical predictions for various cosmological and astrophysical phenomena with high-precision observational data.

Each year, the ICTP Prize is given in honour of a scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the field in which the prize is given. The 2022 ICTP Prize is dedicated to the memory of Russian physicist Valery Rubakov for his fundamental contributions at the interface of particle physics and cosmology.
