NewFunFiCO network

A new staff exchange network - NewFunFiCO - was chosen for funding within the Horizon-MSCA-2021-SE-01 call. The network has nodes at Aveiro University (Portugal, coordinator), University of Valencia (Spain), Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitaet Frankfurt Am Main (Germany), Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (Mexico), Universidade Federal do Pará (Brazil) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (China). The network will start on January 1st 2023 and have a lifetime of 4 years.

A waveform catalogue for Proca star collisions

The detection of gravitational waves has been one of the most exciting scientific developments of the XXIst century. These detections are theory-driven, they rely on the existence of waveform libraries, which have been constructed for binary black holes and neutron stars. Gr@v members have collaborated on the construction of the first waveform catalogue for exotic compact objects, an effort led by former Gr@v member Nicolas Sanchis Gual (now at the U. Valencia).
