Marco Martins

Group Leader
Technology Engineering Group

Marco Martins graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon. He has worked in the semiconductor industry for 12 years and since 2012 integrated INL’s staff of engineers performing Application Engineer functions.
Recently helped to create the Technology Engineering Group and became group leader.
The Technology Engineering Group (TEG) is a cohesive, multifaceted engineering team that promotes INL’s core R&D&I skills, in particular in the area of system engineering. It aims to expand the installed capacities for an interdisciplinary approach to transform concepts into high-quality nano-technology based products and services.
The multidisciplinary team of Engineers from different areas, namely Mechanical, Electronic, Computer Engineering and Physics, and work very closely with each other and ensure continuity between the knowledge accumulated at INL and the existing knowledge in companies, enabling a faster and more effective data transfer.
