On November 21, 2017 the Committee for Monitoring the Arrangement signed on October 3, 2017 by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness and the State Agency "Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)" was established for the implementation of EEyELabs project "Improvement of the energetic efficiency and e-labs of the ICTS-RBD, Doñana Biological Reserve".
The two actions that will be carried out - with European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) co-financing - are aimed at improving the energy efficiency of the RBD, which includes reorganization of the infrastructures dedicated to the ICTS users and the inclusion of some equipment that will reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, as well as the reinforcement of the sensor network and e-labs. Thus, the deployment of the automatic sensors network at the RBD will be complete and will improve the information and communication technologies (ICT) infrastructures, incorporating new training tools for the analysis of genomic data applied to diversity.
The project budget is € 1,419,882, 80% of which are co-financed with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) corresponding to the Operational Programme "Smart Growth" 2014-2020, assigned to the General Secretariat of Science and Innovation, for financing projects and actions related to infrastructures included in the current Map of Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS, by its initials in Spanish). This project expires at the end of 2019.
