DEEC LUNCHON SEMINAR - "FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH AND EUROPEAN FUNDING"
DEEC LUNCHEON Seminar - 13 de maio de 2020, 13H30
Title: "FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH AND EUROPEAN FUNDING"
Speaker: Vitor Cardoso, CENTRA, Dept. de Física, IST
Abstract: Competitive science and fundamental research very often requires a good level of stable, bureaucracy-free funding. I will discuss my own experience with the Marie Curie, COST and European Research Council schemes.
Short Bio: Vitor Cardoso is professor of physics and leader of the gravity group at IST, Lisbon. He is a CERN Associate and is Chair of the COST Action GWverse. He is a world-leading expert in black-hole physics, strong gravity, and gravitational-wave tests of general relativity. Prof. Cardoso has a long-standing collaboration with the theoretical gravity group at Sapienza. During his visit, he gave a talk about black holes as fundamental physics laboratories and on the perspective of detecting effects of physics beyond general relativity with current and future detectors. Professor Vítor Cardoso is the author of a book and more than 150 scientific articles, received two ERC grants from the European Research Council, and in 2015 he was awarded the title of Officer of the Order of Santiago de Espada, by the President of the Republic of Portugal.
