Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE)
The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE) is a joint research center of the University of Santiago de Compostela and the Autonomous Government of Galicia. The Institute performs frontier research in High Energy Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Astroparticle Physics and related areas, both theoretical and experimental.
One of the cornerstones of the Institute is a coordinated and long-term planned participation in the international experiments carried out in large international infrastructures. Members of the Institute have obtained top-quality results in experiments at the CERN LHC, Pierre Auger Observatory or GSI, among others. The theoretical section is also internationally reputed.
The Maria de Maeztu award is an opportunity to boost the scientific performance of the Institute in the quest of some of the most fundamental questions in Physics.
The Maria de Maeztu unit of excellence will produce significant changes in our Institute. We are putting forward an ambitious program that will boost our international visibility and will allow us to open new lines in some of the most competitive areas of Physics.
