The Enrique Gaviola Institute of Physics (IFEG) is an executive unit of CONICET in the city of Córdoba. Administratively it belongs to the Scientific and Technologic Center Córdoba and is under the dual management of CONICET and the National University of Córdoba (UNC). Its physical location is the School of Mathematics, Astronomy, Physics and Computation (FaMAF) of the UNC. IFEG arose naturally from the research groups already present at the Physics Department of FaMAF. Most IFEG researchers carry out undergraduate or graduate teaching activities in FaMAF.
