The scientific and technological activity of the IEEC members has pushed the creation of different laboratories at the research units focusing on the development, integration and testing of space science instrumentation. These facilities provide the appropriate environment to simulate the operating conditions on space and on Earth observatories.
Laboratories and services have been built by the different institutions that form the IEEC, namely UPC, UB, UAB, CSIC and Generalitat de Catalunya. The IEEC has contributed to developing and equipping these facilities by providing equipment and specialized personnel. A complete set of laboratories is now available to IEEC researchers and guarantees optimal support to participate in all phases for the construction of instrumentation for space missions and ground-based observatories.
