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.
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).
Gr@v member P. Cunha presented an invited seminar in the Physics Department of the University of Vienna.
Jose Blázquez-Salcedo (Complutense, Madrid), Romain Gervalle (Tours), Fech Scen Khoo (Oldenburg) and Tigran Tchrakian (DIAS, Dublin) visited us in the week of Dec. 5 2022, and lectured in the 1 day Strong Gravity Workshop our group organized.
The VIII Amazoniana Workshop on Gravity and Analogue models took place from 21-25 November 2022. The video recording of the courses and lectures will soon be put online.
