Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity, astrophysics 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.
Our group co-organized and participated in the Amazonian workshop on Black Holes and Analogue models of gravity, held at Universidade Federal do Pará, in Belém do Pará, gateway to the Amazonian region of Brazil from 7-9 August 2012.

Gr@v members participated in the 13th Marcel Grossmann Meeting, which took place in Stockholm, presenting talks on n-DBI gravity (Flávio Coelho), Shock Wave Collisions (Carlos Herdeiro and Marco Sampaio), Hawking Radiation (Mengjie Wang) and Numerical Relativity (Miguel Zilhão).
