INL joins SiNANO, the European Academic and Scientific Association for Nanoelectronics

January 5, 2024

INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory joins SiNANO Institute. The decision was made official in December 2023 – INL just became the 26th member of the SiNANO Institute, bringing new competencies to the network.

According to Clivia Sotomayor-Torres, Director General of INL,joining SINANO is an important and forward-looking step for the INL towards enhancing our role in the European Research Area. As a researcher, since joining, I have appreciated the role of SINANO in enhancing the activities of the academic and small RTO’s communities in the European landscape. I am a firm believer in the mission of SINANO with emphasis on opportunities for our younger colleagues and students to play their full role in advancing the science in nanoelectronics. The networking and infrastructure projects as well as the internationalisation of the nanoelectronics community are aspects I deeply appreciate. I hope to continue contributing to SINANO working along with my esteemed and respected colleagues and friends towards a better future.”

SiNANO Institute, the European Academic and Scientific Association for Nanoelectronics, is a non-profit Association established as a durable EU Network of researchers and brings together renowned European Research Organisations and Universities from 15 European countries and is linked to 20 Start-ups stemming from their activities, based on disruptive research at low/medium TRLs.

The SiNANO Institute is in overall agreement on the drivers and objectives of the European Chips Act. The recent chip shortages and geopolitical changes have made it clear that Europe needs to address its strategic autonomy in the supply chain of chip manufacturing. A European Chips Act is critical for the future of the twin Green and Digital Transition and provides a great opportunity for Europe’s technology sector.
