Abstract [en]

On the 1st of September, 1961, an international fellowship programme started at theInstitute of Physics, Uppsala University. Fifteen fellows from 14 developing countrieswere invited to spend one academic year in Sweden to be trained in research work. Theprogramme was at that time called the International Seminar for Research and Educationin Physics. Today, 40 years later, the programme has developed from a fellowshipprogramme into a worldwide research project programme, not only in physics but alsoin chemistry, and has given long-term support to the building up of viable researchteams in the Third World. Host laboratories in the northern hemisphere, mainly inSweden but also in other countries, cooperate with the research groups in the ThirdWorld. The programme changed its name in 1987 to the International Science Programme.The programme has been financially supported by the Swedish Government throughits agencies for aid to developing countries. Uppsala University, UNESCO and IAEAhave also contributed.The development of the programme is described. In his introduction the Vice Chancellorof Uppsala University points out the importance for the entire university to beengaged in cooperation with the Third World. Ideas about the future of the programmeare presented. Some of the research groups in the Third World have been engaged in theprogramme for nearly twenty years. Their experience is presented in a number of shortarticles.
