• CeNTI, The Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart materials is a distinct European Research and development Centre, equipped with cutting-edge technology, and conducting world-class research and development. CeNTI provides, in a business to business approach, applied R&D, engineering and scaling-up production. CeNTI has strict protocols to protect client confidentiality and intellectual property. Our services take a multi-disciplinary approach and include the participation of experienced technologists and researchers (physicists, chemists, electronics/chemical/materials engineers).
  • INL, The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is an Intergovernmental Organisation created to foster interdisciplinary research in Nanotechnology and Nanoscience. Aiming to become a vital part of Europe´s scientic aerea, INL provides a high-teach research enviroment addressing major challenges in nanomedicine, nanotechnology applied to environmental & food control nanoelectronics, and nanomachines and molecular manipulation at nanoscale.
  • The Nanotech@NortePT Team, based at the institutes that comprise CeNTI (Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials) and INL (International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory), is perfectly positioned to implement all the proposed actions, taking into account not only the profile and skills of each member, but also the proximity to industry that provide an exceptional opportuity to create new approaches to foster Nanotechnology Knowledge transfer in the North Region of Portugal.
  • The Nanotech@NortePT Team have a vast experience in technology transfer and translation services with solid connections to industry in Portugal and Europe. Business, technology transfer, R&D and innovation, intellectual property, are valuable skills to effectively and efficiently develop an approach to optimize resources for faster and more efficient knowledge transfer activities.
