Paulo Ferreira, who leads the Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy at INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, was recently nominated co-Director for the area of Nanotechnology at the University of Texas – Austin / Portugal Program.

This initiative, which was renewed for another decade, intends to foster collaboration between Portuguese based research institutions and UT-Austin. This partnership has seen its funding increase three times since the beggining and it addresses knowledge areas where scientists and companies in Portugal will engage with the University and other institutions in Texas in multidisciplinary education, research and technology transfer and commercialization.
