The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory

August 20, 2017 - 3:45am
The international Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is an intergovernmental organization offering advanced comprehensive research facilities available to scientists and engineers from several disciplines and industries. The director of the INL, Dr. Lars Montelius, recently spoke at Northeastern on nanotechnology as a driver of change, and the work of the INL to shepherd innovation at the nanoscale. The INL is unique in its capacity to serve as a development unit for small to mid-size companies that might not otherwise be able to afford costly development. Read more about the INL at their website. Dr. Lars Montelius, director of the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

NanoOPS at Northeastern University

August 20, 2017 - 3:45am
WTEC.org has published a short film on YouTube. Their website is here. From their website: “WTEC is the nation’s leading organization in conducting international technology assessments. During the 1990s, it was called the World Technology Evaluation Center (WTEC) Division of Loyola University Maryland. In 2001, WTEC was spun off into a separate nonprofit corporation by R. D. Shelton. WTEC now also provides other services to public and private sector clients.”
