New book about Map of Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures (ICTS)

Book Map icts

The term Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) refers to facilities, resources or services necessary for the development of cutting-edge research of the highest quality, as well as for knowledge transmission, exchange and preservation, technology transfer and innovation promotion. They are unique or exceptional in their kind, with very high investment, maintenance and operating costs, and whose importance and strategic nature justifies their availability to the entire R+D+I community. ICTS have three fundamental characteristics: they are publicly owned infrastructures, they are unique and they are open to competitive access.

The ICTS are distributed throughout the national territory and are included in what is called the “Map of Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS)”, where the Center for Microanalysis of Materials (CMAM) and the National Center for Accelerators (CNA) form the distributed ICTS IABA (Infrastructure of applications based on accelerators).

The Ministry of Science and Innovation has created a book in the summary version of the ICTS Map updated.

You can view the book at the following link.

The previous books are also kept on the Ministry’s website, since they have complementary information of interest.

The design and layout work has been done in collaboration with the FECYT.
