The Research Unit of the University Hospital Ntra Sra de Candelaria carries out its research activity focusing on the areas that include the most prevalent diseases of the population. On the one hand, we contemplate molecular and cellular technologies and tools necessary to generate new knowledge and its transfer to clinical practice in the area of health, diagnosis and follow-up of diseases, monitoring of the therapeutic response, disease prevention and development of new medicines. On the other hand, we include translational research, which focuses on the knowledge of the mechanisms involved in diseases and their transfer to clinical applications.

The Local Energy Management Agency of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ALGE-LPGC) it is an autonomous body guided by Municipality of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria that began its journey in 2007, although its implementation and activity did not begin to become effective until 2008. It was established within the framework of the CIP-IEE Intelligent Energy Europe programme of the European Commission. The overall objective of ALGE is to promote energy savings and efficiency and the implementation of renewable energies, promoting the development of a more sustainable energy model from the local level.
With the aim of stimulate Energy Saving and Efficiency actions in the island of Tenerife, the Cabildo Insular of Tenerife encouraged the creation of the Agencia Insular de Energía de Tenerife. The proposal was submitted to the “Intelligent Energy-Europe” program, VI EU Framework Program, together with the islands of Samsø (Denmark) and Iceland. The Agencia Insular de Tenerife was constituted as Foundation on the 26th of July of 2005. Several actors representing different sectors implied in the Agency activities and beneficiaries of these actions actively participate as members of the Insular Agency. Our Main Target: to develop scientific and technical…
Cluster in Sustainable Construction (CCS) was created in 2009 as a professional and entrepreneurial organization of canarian field and independent character, and since then aims to contribute to the creation of a sustainable economic model for the sector of Construction. CCS is formed of business and professional actors that encompass the construction value chain (architecture, energy, water, materials, engineering, home automation, I+D, planning) all committed to sustainability and each specialized to develop this commitment in their field of knowledge.
The Laboratory of Geosciences of Lanzarote (LGL) was created in 1986 and has three permanent observation modules located in Cueva de los Verdes, Jameos del Agua and Timanfaya National Park. Its facilities carry out multidisciplinary research activities in Geosciences, including observations related to geodynamic activity (gravity, seismicity, geodesy, etc.), the ocean-earth-atmosphere system, monitoring in underground systems or studies of terrestrial analogues, among others.
The Botanical Garden “Viera y Clavijo” it is dedicated to the conservation and management of the terrestrial Flora Canaria through three main areas of action: research, environmental education (including outreach) and the maintenance and exhibition of living collections of terrestrial plants, especially endemisms of the Canary Islands and Macaronesia, but also of areas to the planet that maintaining floristic connections with the Canary Islands.
