10 research projects selected under INL-Brazil collaboration

November 1, 2013


10 nanotechnology research projects were selected within the INL-Brazil collaboration agreement (CAPES/INL call). The projects will be developed in Brazilian research centers in collaboration with the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

This initiative arises from the Memorandum of Understanding signed at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), earlier this year, between the governments of Brazil, Portugal and Spain. The results of the 1st call launched by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (CAPES) can be found here.

The collaboration agreement allows the access of Brazilian researchers and students to INL’s state of the art facilities and promotes increased awareness and mobility among the different centers.

The main areas of cooperation are electronic nanodevices, nanostructures and nanoparticles for applications in nanomedicine, environment control and water and food quality monitoring.
