The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (‘INL’) is an international organisation created to promote interdisciplinary research on nanotechnology and nanoscience. Aiming to become a vital part of Europe’s scientific area, the INL provides a high-tech research environment addressing major challenges in nanomedicine, nanotechnology applied to environmental and food control nanoelectronics, and nanomachines and molecular manipulation at the nanoscale. The cornerstones of INL’s mission are: assuring world-class research excellence in its areas of activity; creating strong scientific communities in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, in close liaison with global-scale laboratories; developing collaboration between universities and industries, as well as between public and private sectors, training researchers, and contributing to the development of a skilled workforce for the nanotechnology industry; organising and sponsoring European and international co-operation in nanoscience and nanotechnology research; setting up intellectual property rules to make the results of its work and know-how available, enable the technology transfer and protect its inventions; developing systems to prevent and master nanotechnology risks.


The purpose of this data processing operation is to subscribe to INL´s newsletters and information about INL’s activities and services.
