October 19, 2016

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), the Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials (CeNTI), University of Minho and Startup Braga created an alliance to foster the development of entrepreneurship and businesses, based on nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is a key enabling technology with applications in all industrial and societal sectors. Even if the nanoscale per se is not visible to the human eye, the effects of the nanoscale govern easily accessible properties such as self-cleaning windows, optical effects, non-stainable fabrics, etc.

Nanotechnology is present in all kind of modern electronic devices such as displays, computers, mobile devices, memories, various kinds of sensors and Internet-of-things (IoT) related devices.

Without nanotechnology, we would not have had Facebook, Spotify and other modern IT-related services,” said Lars Montelius, Director General of INL.
