The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory

InterNano Industry News - 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.
