NANBIOSIS renews its accreditation as Unique Scientific Technological Infrastructure (ICTS)

NANBIOSIS is one of the 29 ICTS (Unique Scientific Technological Infrastructures) recognized by the Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy Council (CPCTI) of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. On November 6, the Council approved the updating of the ICTS Map in which the accreditation of Nanbiosis is renewed as one of them.

The new Map is integrated by 29 ICTS, which bring together a total of 62 infrastructures, all of them operative. In the new update the number of ICTS is maintained, but the number of infrastructures is increased by the incorporation of new nodes to existing distributed ICTS.

NANBIOSIS offers complete services for the production and characterization of nanomaterials, biomaterials and systems in biomedicine. This ICTS is integrated by the CIBER-BBN and the Minimally Invasive Surgery Center Jesús Usón (CCMIJU) and the recent incorporation of Bionand in Málaga. It consists of 28 units distributed throughout the Spanish geography and coordinated under a single contact point. These units offer a complementary service tailored and turnkey projects that includes the design and production of biomaterials and nanomaterials and the characterization of these bio and nanomaterials, tissues, devices and medical systems from a point of view, physical-chemical, functional , toxicological and biological (including preclinical validation), focused on biomedical applications.

All this potential allows from developing a therapeutic agent until it reaches its preclinical validation and wrapped by the best Spanish research groups in bioengineering, biomaterials and nanomedicine.

ICTS map

The map of Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures is a planning and development tool for these infrastructures in coordination with the Autonomous Communities. The new ICTS Map approved by the Council is the result of a rigorous independent evaluation process and consolidates the single location and distributed infrastructures.

The ICTS are available to the scientific, technological and industrial, national and international community. These avant-garde scientific-technical infrastructures, indispensable for the development of competitive and quality scientific and technological research, are unique in their kind, with a very high investment and / or maintenance cost and operation and whose strategic nature justifies their competitive access for the entire R & D & I system.

In addition to NANBIOSIS, Integrated Infrastructure of Production and Characterization of Nanomaterials, Biomaterials and Systems in Biomedicine, the ICTS in Health Sciences and Biotechnology are:

  • Integrated Infrastructure of Omic Technologies,
  • Network of Laboratories of High Biological Safety,
  • Distributed Network of Biomedical Image and
  • Network of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratories of Biomolecules.


The map is completed by another 24 ICTS in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Sciences of the Sea, Life and Earth; Information and Communications Technologies; Energy; Engineering; Materials; Socioeconomic Sciences and Humanities

Update of the Map of Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) 2017-2020

The updating of the Spanish ICTS Map aims to consolidate this map as a tool for long-term planning and development of this type of infrastructure, updating it according to established criteria, with emphasis on quality and scientific-technical and economic sustainability, prioritizing the continuity Of the installations in operation and those that have viable financing scenarios, implementing it jointly with the Autonomous Communities.

This tool also makes it possible to optimally plan the application of national, regional and European funding, in particular FEDER funds from the programming period 2014-2020, aiming to achieve a stable medium-term funding framework to guarantee the achievement of its objectives.

In order to report on the procedure for updating the ICTS Map, a meeting with the directors of the map in force was held on 22 June at the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, where NANBIOSIS was present as well. The Secretary General of Science and Innovation, Juan María Vázquez Rojas, opened the day welcoming the directors and thanking them for their presence and collaboration. Subsequently, the Deputy Director General of Large Scientific and Technical Facilities, José Ignacio Doncel Morales, explained the procedure for updating the ICTS Map.

Once this updating procedure is completed, it will be the Council of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Policy, after a report from the Advisory Committee on Unique Infrastructures (CAIS) approving the configuration and composition of the new ICTS Map.
