Laboratório Ibérico Internacional de Nanotecnologia
The Laboratory, currently under construction, aims to strengthen the scientific and technological cooperation between Portugal and Spain in the areas of nanotechnologies and nanosciences.
A decision was reached at the 21st Portugal-Spain Summit held in Évora on 18th and 19th November 2005 to set up a Portuguese-Spanish R&D Institute, as a groundbreaking initiative symbolising a new type of international institutional R&D partnership in science and technology in Europe. It was decided that the institute would be located in Braga-Portugal. Its first director would be a Spanish researcher (Professor José Rivas of the University of Santiago de Compostela, nominated on the occasion by the President of the Government of Spain) and it would have 200 researchers from Spain, Portugal and other countries, with an annual operational budget of approximately 30 million Euros and an additional investment of the same amount, shared equally between the two countries. The idea behind setting up this new institute is to beef up scientific and technological cooperation between Portugal and Spain, opening up a new era in their relations and in building national knowledge-based economies.
