About us

EPhysLab is a multidisciplinary research group of the University of Vigo, established in 2002. The group is formed of researchers in both Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics, and Computer Engineering that belong to the Faculty of Science and the School of Aerospace Engineering in Ourense. The group includes seven lecturers and around 30 researchers all working on a range of research topics.  

Our research aims are within the scope of Environmental Science, considering many different aspects. These research aims have been funded by Europe, the Spanish Government, Xunta de Galicia and in a small part by private bodies.

In our work we always strive for excellence; and we have published around 30 scientific journal papers in the last five years in peer-reviewed international journals (SCI), a majority to the level of Q1.

Since 2006, we have been a “Competitive Reference Group of the Xunta de Galicia” and have been part of the “Marine Research Centre (CIM)”, one of the five Singular Research Centres of Galicia, since 2016. In addition, we are an Associated Research Unit of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC).

EPhysLab has several collaboration agreements with more than twenty Universities and Research Centres both nationally and internationally, as well as with private bodies. These collaborations are based on the transfer of knowledge. With the aim of joining research, transfer and teaching, we are actively linked to two strategic initiatives of the University of Vigo: the Campus del Mar and the Campus del Agua.

You can find us in the Campus del Agua building in Ourense.
