• We are funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through the Grant PID2020-113775GB-I00 (Sep 2021 – Aug 2024), successor of a sequence of previous grants, such as FPA2017-85216-P, FPA2014-58183-P, FPA2011-22975, FPA2008-00319, FPA2005-01269 and BFM2002-00345.
  • We are also funded by Generalitat Valenciana under the Grant for Excellence Groups PROMETEO/2018/165 (Jan 2018 – Dec 2021), successor of the previous grants PROMETEOII/2014/084 and PROMETEO/2009/091, and the Grants for Excellence Junior researchers SEJI/2020/016 (Jan 2020 – Dec 2022) and SEJI/2018/033 (Jan 2018 – Mar 2021).
  • We are a node of the excellence MultiDark Project, addressing all aspects of Dark Matter Detection, theoretical and experimental, in a Multimessenger Approach, and involving all Spanish Institutions active on the subject. MultiDark was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation’s Consolider-Ingenio 2010 Programme, under contract MULTIDARK CSD2009-00064 (Dec 2009 – Jun 2016) and it is now a Consolider Network of Excellence (July 2018 – Dec 2020).


  • We were a node of the Marie Curie Initial Training Network on Unification in the LHC era (Contract Number UNILHC PITN-GA-2009-237920), a successor to several previous networking activities financed by the EU such as European Commission Research Training Networks The Quest For Unification: Theory Confronts Experiment (Contract Number MRTN-CT-2004-503369) and Physics Across the Present Energy Frontier: Probing the Origin of Mass (Contract Number HPRN-CT-2000-00148).
  • We have also hosted a large number of postdoctoral Marie Curie fellows in individual EC research contracts. Recent examples include Dr Michal Malinský (project FLUENT, PIEF-GA-2009-253119) and Dr Stefano Gariazzo (project ENCORE, H2020-MSCA-IF-2017, ID 796941)
  • We were part of ILIAS/N6 on European Network of Theoretical Astroparticle Physics (Contract Number RII3-CT-2004-506222).
  • We hosted the European Commission Research Training Site aimed at training undergraduate students engaged in their PhD Thesis on Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model (Contract Number HPMT-2000-00124). This recognizes the group’s excellence experience in the early stage training of young scientists.
  • We coordinated the European Science Foundation Network Neutrino Astrophysics, aimed at fostering the collaboration on neutrino physics and astrophysics.
  • We had support from private foundations, such as Santander, BBVA and Iberdrola, who has selected our Group as the recipient of their prestigious excellence award grant.
  • The AHEP Group has hosted several Santiago Grisolía Fellowships from Generalitat Valenciana.
