Scientific & Technologic Computing

We apply information and communication technologies to e-administration and business management projects for Canary public institutions to speed up procedures, improve public services, facilitate citizens’ access to the administration and optimize public agent management. We provide the technological support required by ITC R+D+i deptartments to develop their projects.

We develop software and digital tools aimed at the scope of energy and water resources (solar and wind maps, design of weather forecast systems, installation management, production data, etc.); and biocomputing (management and coding of genetic information of a large volume of species).

We boost the use of virtual and augmented reality technology in R+D projects.

We develop interactive tools, likewise gamification technologies for educational and divulgative purposes regarding scientific knowledge and resources.

We drive the use of ICTs in strategic Canary sectors like tourism and agriculture. We develop software products in the Canaries.

    Software development in energy meteorology fields (forecast) and Climate Change study

    Computation offers solutions for the development of other areas due to their capacity to perform simulations likewise to obtain specific results from processed information. Specific studies on weather forecast systems enabling us to bring forward renewable energy productions and common platforms for different regions to co-ordinate climate change effects; therefore, computation is their tool.
