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 European Einstein Toolkit Meeting 2023 will be held at the University of Aveiro, hosted by our group, from 19–23 June 2023. More info on the event website.
The paper "Exotic compact objects and the fate of the light ring instability" has been selected as Editor's suggestion in Physical Review Letters (published February 7th 2023) and was also featured in Physics Magazine, an online publication from the American Physical Society (APS) that reports on papers in the Physical Review Journals.
The NewFunFiCO Staff Exchange network had its kick off meeting on January 19th 2023. The meeting was virtual, but it promised very interesting real work and synergies to come in the next four years!
The XV Black Holes Workshop took place at ISCTE in Lisbon, with a record number of participants and communications (group photo attached). The next edition will take place in Porto, at the Faculty of Engineering, in the 19-20 December 2023.
The last five sessions of the Gr@v group seminars are now on YouTube in our dedicated channel https://www.youtube.com/@Gravchannel. These include the talks from Guilherme Raposo (University of Aveiro), Roberto Emparan (ICREA and Univeristy of Barcelona), Daniela Doneva (University of Tubingen), Andrew Coates (Koc University) and Renate Loll (Radboud University).

On December 5, Gr@v member Lorenzo Annulli gave an outreach seminar at Universidade Federal do Pará, in the beautiful setting of Salinópolis. The seminar (in Portuguese) focused on gravitational waves and their physics. He was hosted by Prof. Carolina Benone, a former Gr@v member and current collaborator, and Prof. Caio Macedo.
The Madrid Winter Workshop took place at Complutense University, Madrid, from 12-15 December 2023. C. Herdeiro was one of the invited speakers.
The Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) announced the 6th edition of the individual call to scientific employment stimulus, open from April 4th to May 3rd 2023, for researchers with a Ph.D. and including four different seniority levels. Applications require the support of a host research unit. Researchers wishing to join our group should contact the group coordinator (C. Herdeiro).
