Doñana’s Singular Scientific-Technical Infrastructure (ICTS-RBD) provides access and support to carry out research at the Doñana Protected Areas.

For such purpose, it provides researchers with accomodation, various facilities and technical/logistical support. It also runs monitoring programs to assess the status and trends of biodiversity, provides online access to all the information gathered by these monitoring programs and delivers ICT service management and tools to facilitate the search and use of that information.

Updated map of unique scientific and technical infrastructures (ICTS) published

January 2020

The Doñana Biological Reserve (RBD), belonging to Doñana Biological Station (EBD-CSIC), joined the Spanish ICTS network in 2006.The term “Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS)” refers to leading R&D facilities that, individually or by coordinating several installations, provide services for pioneering and top-quality research, as well as for the transmission, exchange and preservation of knowledge, transfer of technology, and promotion of innovation. The ultimate goal is to provide the national and international science, technology and industrial community with pioneering scientific-technical infrastructures that are essential for competitive and quality scientific and technical research.

Access to advanced scientific and technical infrastructures is one of the most important assets when it comes to remaining as a leader in research, increasing the specialised training capacity in R&D activities and capturing talent.

The ICTS Map is regularly updated by an experts evaluation panel, which considers criteria of maximum scientific, technological and innovation quality. The ICTS are located across Spain and are included on the “National Map of Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS)”. The current map was approved in November 2018 by the Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy Council (CPCTI) and consists of 29 ICTS, bringing together a total of 62 infrastructures

Start a project

If you plan to do research in Doñana, you must bear in mind that your project must be approved by the Research Access Commission of the Doñana Participation Council. The ICTS-RBD provides assistance throughout the procedure. Read more

Request access, accommodation and/or technical and logistic support

Once your research project has been approved by ICTS-RBD, you can request access and accomodation in the Biological Reserve using this online form and/or logistic or technical support using this online form . Do not forget to read carefully the facilities’ use rules. Read more

Request biodiversity data

You can visualize ICTS-RBD’s biodiversity monitoring data at the Data Infrastructure and consult essential ecosystem indicators derived from them at the Global Change Observatory. Raw data are offered free of charge to competitive research projects, subject to the following terms and conditions of use included in this data-request form.

Bird Ringing Lab

The Bird Ringing Lab is a service of ICTS-RBD that centralizes all scientific ringing activities undertaken in Doñana, and coordinates non-metallic bird banding in Spain. Read More
