*** Note unusual time ***
I will present a summary of the scientific and technological projects that are being developed at IGN , in the fields of Astronomy and Space Geodesy. Our department, which includes the National Astronomical Observatory, and the Technology Development Center in Yebes Observatory, is engaged in studies of star formation and evolution in our galaxy, studies of external galaxies, using (and developing technology for) ALMA , Herschel satellite, IRAM , and our 40-m radio telescope as a station of the European and global VLBI networks. Moreover, the RAEGE project has recently started to participate in the construction of the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) supported by IAU and IAG for accurate measurements of plate tectonics, Earth orientation parameters, and reference frames.
