We are a non-profit organization formed by a multi-disciplinary team with extensive experience in the generation of knowledge to promote the conservation of austral ecosystems biodiversity through research projects, technological innovation, development and outreach

Misión

Generar conocimiento y comprensión de los ecosistemas australes, favoreciendo la investigación asociativa, la vinculación pública-privada y la educación para la conservación de nuestro patrimonio natural. Asimismo, promover el manejo sustentable de los ecosistemas terrestres, dulceacuícolas y marinos.

Visión

El Centro ICEA contribuirá al fortalecimiento de la identidad regional y el desarrollo sustentable de la sociedad en su contexto ecosistémico, mediante un plan de conservación y estudio de áreas naturales que nos permitan crear un legado natural para futuras generaciones.

Objetivos

Consolidar la investigación científica en ambientes marinos, dulceacuícolas y terrestres para establecer medidas de conservación efectivas y éticas en los ecosistemas australes.

Para alcanzar nuestro objetivo, nos enfocaremos en cuatro programas:

  • Educación y transferencia para el sector turismo.

  • Investigación con foco en ecosistemas australes.

  • Estudios socio-ecológicos de apoyo a toma de decisiones estratégicas.

BUSINESS SCIENCE LINKAGE PROGRAM IN PATAGONIA 

This Program is part of an innovative initiative that unites science with private companies through a program that has been funded by the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research of Chile, currently the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID).

 

The ICEA Center and the private company, represented by the Holding Company COMAPA S.A, Austro Chile A.G., Association of Local Guides of Puerto Natales A.G., Association of Local Guides of Punta Arenas A.G., Association of Hotels and Tourist Services of Paine A.G. They form a strong and reciprocal link between the productive sector of tourism and the scientific community.

A double-sided associative link: (1) the delivery of "science" to the company, and (2) the return of "the company" to science.

01

DELIVERY FROM SCIENCE TO BUSINESS

The local scientific transfer, through training to nature guides that updates and expands the account of the regional natural history that the guides offer to tourist visitors.

02

THE RETURN FROM BUSINESS TO SCIENCE

The researchers train nature guides (company) during their activities, to collect data on-site, using scientific monitoring protocols, an action that in turn gives a sustainability character to these investigations.

SCIENTIFIC MONITORING

cadic.jpg

Researchers from the ICEA Center and associated institutions train nature guides during the regular operations offered by our Associated Companies (Australis, HYST and Austro Chile) to establish long-term scientific monitoring.

These monitoring will constitute the most extensive data network in the country and will allow us to develop tourist routes with scientific content in the macrozone of fjords and channels of Patagonia, generating added value to the regional tourism offer.
