As a communications infrastructure, RedIRIS is one of the basic research e-infrastructures, together with computing resources and storage.

Other essential components of e-science are data repositories, scientific applications and middleware, which enables secure and efficient interoperation between these applications and with the e-infrastructures on which they run.

In addition to its advanced communications network, RedIRIS also offers other services for e-science, such as digital certificates especially intended for this area, management of security incidents on the grid, and training. All of this is co-ordinated within the Spanish e-Science Network and, in particular, with its National Grid Initiative (NGI), which collaborates in the European Grid Initiative (EGI).
