The International Campus of Physics and Mathematics, as a combination of groups of the University of Cantabria and the Institute of Physics of Cantabria (UC-Spanish National Research Council), stands out for its important teaching and research quality, its international projection and its capacity to provide support, in a transversal manner, to the Campuses of Water and Energy, of Banking, Finance and Business Activities, of Technology, and of Biomedicine and Biotechnology. It provides a solid basis of scientific capacities applicable to many fields, amongst which the following stand out internationally:
High energy physics, in association with major international laboratories (CERN and Fermilab) and important experimental developments and with notable scientific calculation infrastructures (Altamira node of the Spanish Supercomputing Network, ICTS).
Astrophysics, taking active part in several of the main observatories and space missions in collaboration with international organisations such as the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO).
Statistical and Non-linear Physics, with important international collaborations.
Mathematics, with several groups that stand out for their level of impact in scientific journals, working strongly on computing and modelling.
