General Relativity and Gravitation Group

The General Relativity and Gravitation Group (GRG) at the Facultad de Matemática Astronomía y Física (FaMAF) of the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC), started its activities around 1970. During the 80's, the group acquired a reasonable dimension when some researchers came back to Córdoba after spending a period in doctorate programs and postdoctoral activities.

Today the group has one superior researcher, two principal researchers, three independent researchers, three adjoint researchers and several collaborators, together with more than fifteen Ph.D. students. The group receives support, for its present activities, from: Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones científicas y técnicas (CONICET), Secretaría de Ciencia y Técnica de la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (SeCyT-UNC), and the Agencia Nacional de Promoción Científica y Tecnológica (ANPCyT) through the FONCyT.

Different researchers from the group have participated and are participating in collaboration agreements with other colleagues from the U.S. and Europe.

The group mantains graduate fellowships and postdoctoral positions supported by CONICET, SeCyT - UNC and FONCYT.

Several national and regional meetings have been organized in the past with support from the above mentioned sources and the Academia Nacional de Ciencias and the International Centre of Theoretical Physics (ICTP) at Trieste. In July of 1992 the group organized the GR13 Meeting of the International Society of General Relativity and Gravitation; with an attendance of more than 400 scientists from all over the world.
