About us

Established in 2009, the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is a collaborative research and technology organisation founded by Spain and Portugal. Headquartered in Braga, northern Portugal, INL operates within an international legal framework to conduct interdisciplinary research and implement nanotechnologies for the benefit of society. INL focuses on strategic research areas that deepen our understanding of fundamental phenomena, serving as the basis for the development of innovative technologies. By progressing through the innovation pipeline, these technologies aim to address current global challenges, aligning with the priorities outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Key areas include clean water, clean energy, zero hunger, good health, and overall well-being. The INL community is now about 475 people. INL’s mission is two-fold: to carry out excellent research in nanotechnology, and to engage with society by means of technology transfer and public outreach. This twin approach guides the organisation to navigate the unknown universe of science, and to identify new research areas at the intersection of established knowledge fields. The overarching objective is to advance research anchored in nanotechnology towards new science and novel methodologies, and to devise nanotechnology-based solutions, in the physical and human environments, mediated by cutting-edge research in information and communication technologies

Role of INL:

In MemCat, INL is in charge of coordinating the project and will do the synthesis of nanostructured tandem catalysts for CO2 hydrogenation.
