Use the UdG's scientific and technical equipment

High level

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

Given its nature and mission, the University of Girona is equipped with high-level scientific and technical facilities and has access to internationally sophisticated research infrastructures that is 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 infrastructures outside 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 RTS are split into six units that combine a set of similar experimental techniques
or are dedicated to providing services related to specific methodological expertise.

  • Chemical and Structural Unit of Analysis
  • Thermal Analysis unit
  • Unit of Environmental Engineering
  • Unit of Masses Spectrometry
  • Unit of Microscopy and Biotechnology
  • Underwater Technology Unit

The RTS have obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification, which guarantees the highest quality of service.

Simulation is basic in health care to ensure quality assistance and for students to learn to diagnose and deal with clinical problems without posing a risk for real patients. The Learning and Clinical Simulation Laboratory (LASC) of the Health Research and Health Care group, which has a surface are of about 100 square metres, reproduces a real critical care environment and has the latest technical equipment for dealing with patient in accident and emergency situations.

The laboratory has cutting-edge technology for diagnosing, monitoring and providing life support for a sick person in a critical situation. It is a replica of an area equipped to act as a critical care unit. It also has advanced, life-size dummies from babies to adults, besides other supplementary teaching resources for virtual simulation.

This facility is available for researchers, health workers, companies and institutions that work in accident and emergencies.
