Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group. The group scientific coordinator is C. Herdeiro.

The first BSM2 meeting, organized by our group, took place at Aveiro University during the week 10 to 14 of October. It was in intense week with a handful of rich discussions in hot HEP topics, a number of software tutorials and, above all, new BrainStormed ideas for future scientific projects. Recordings of all presentations and subsequent discussions can be revisited here.
The 2022 update of the Stanford researchers ranking (led by John Ioannidis), places (again) Gr@v researchers C. Herdeiro and E. Radu in the top 2% of their field worldwide, for both their career and the year of 2021. For the latter, P. Cunha and former member N. Sanchis-Gual also enter the top 2% in their field. C.
C. Herdeiro gave an invited webinar for Perimeter Institute on Oct. 18 2022. The video recording can be seen here.
Eugen Radu, a research fellow at U. Aveiro since 2013, became a staff member under a tenured (assistant) researcher position. Dr. Radu has given a central contribution to the development of the Gr@v group over the last decade and his permanent hiring is an important step towards the consollidation of the group.
The VII Scalar Field Dark Matter Workshop, organzied by the Mexican Strong Gravity community will take place in León, Guanajuato, México, and online, on the 27-28 October 2022. C. Herdeiro is one of the invited speakers.
Gr@v member C. Herdeiro presented an invited colloquium at the Physics Department of the U. Illinois, at Urbana-Champaign, home of several Nobel laureates in Physics such as Anthony J. Legget (laureate in 2003) and John Bardeen (laureate in 1956 and 1972).
