CAPA, a new research center at UNIZAR

The new Center for Astroparticle and High Energy Physics (CAPA) at the University of Zaragoza has been formally created few days ago by the governing council of the University.

The CAPA community encompasses all the particle and astroparticle physics groups (both theory and experiment) at UNIZAR, in particular it includes the researchers participating in underground experiments at Canfranc or in IAXO. CAPA’s main goal is to strengthen the research in this field, by promoting synergies between groups and researchers, and in particular fostering the participation and collaboration with singular facilities in the area, like the Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc (LSC), the Centro de Física Pedro Pascual in Benasque or the Observatorio Astronómico de Javalambre (OAJ).  

You can find here a couple of local press releases about the center (here and here) as well as the text of the proposal of creation of the center (both in Spanish).
