The Montgó-Dénia Scientific Station (ESCIMO-Dénia) is a center for environmental and marine research where research, development and innovation, training, consulting and awareness raising activities are carried out.
It is the result of an agreement between three parties:
-The Multidisciplinary Institute for Environmental Studies "Ramon Margalef" of the University of Alicante
-Dénia City Council,
-And the National Parks Autonomous Organization
It started its activity in 2010, then in co-management with the Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC).
The facilities are located in the former IRYDA house, provided by the National Parks Autonomous Organization within the Natural Park of Montgó and near the Natural Marine Reserve of Cabo de San Antonio.
Its privileged location, besides the facilities it has (dry and wet laboratories, meeting rooms, microscopy room, conference hall, etc.) make the ESCIMO-Dénia an ideal place for the development of its functions.
