Use the UdG's scientific and technical equipment

Access UdG equipment

For companies, technical equipment is a major expense and in many cases entails a period of depreciation that perhaps does not justify the investment.

The University of Girona, due to its own nature and mission, is equipped with high-level scientific and technical equipment and has access to internationally sophisticated research infrastructure, available for companies to use.

If you have needs that are not covered by this service, please contact us and we will advise you on how to resolve them, even providing you with information on infrastructure external to the UdG.

The Library offers:

  • Access to library facilities (10,647 m², 1,850 reading spaces).
  • Access to more than 415,000 books, 13,000 e-books and 28,300 electronic journals.
  • Personalised responses to your queries at the counter, over the telephone, by e-mail and online.
  • Consult the Library and CCUC (Collective Catalogue of Catalan Universities) Catalogues.
  • Document lending.
  • Access to the service of Obtaining Documents, which locates and obtains on loan copies and originals of documents that are not available in the UdG's resources. This service is subject to tariffs.
  • Access to the UdG's Digital Library (electronic journals, databases, e-books, official publications, etc.) from computers at any of the UdG's libraries.
  • Access to the sources of the UdG European Documentation Centre (CDE), which contains official European Union publications (OPOCE), including EUROSTAT publications. 

The University of Girona's Research Technical Services (STR) are scientific and technical services aimed at offering instrumental and methodological support to the research activities of UdG research groups and companies and public and private institutions. 

The STR combine sophisticated scientific instrumentation that, due to its complexity and size, needs to be operated by specialised technicians and requires maintenance out of the scope of the users. 

The STR are split into six units that make up a set of similar experimental techniques or are dedicated to providing services related to a concrete methodological expertise.

  • Chemical Analysis Unit
  • Molecular Biology Unit
  • Materials Characterisation Unit
  • Microscopy Unit
  • Statistical Advice Unit
  • Thermal Analysis Unit

The STR have obtained ISO 9001:2008 certification, which guarantees the utmost quality of service.
Apart from the structural units of the STR, there are several Linked Units, which have latest-generation equipment handled by expert research groups.

You can find out more information about these linked units and how to access them at the STR.

The Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing Service (SIGTE) at the University of Girona is a service specialised in processing geolocation information and using and applying geographical information technologies. SIGTE offers technical support, advice, training and technology solutions in the field of geographical information.

We offer services in:


  • Physical maps to include in publications, web pages, leaflets and other supports.
  • Cartography for mobile applications.
  • Interactive online maps.
  • Application of Augmented Reality.


  • Spatial analysis.
  • Design and creation of spatial databases.
  • Design and implementation of SIG projects.
  • Use of SIG software.


  • Geolocation of variables: research results, social media (Twitter, Flickr, Wikipedia...), etc.
  • Collection of data using GPS techniques.


  • Analysis, acquisition and handling of satellite images.
  • Remote sensing.
  • Search and acquisition of digital cartographic sources.
