On the 17th of June the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) is launching the first in a series of meetup events that will promote discussions of Nanotechnology challenges and opportunities for the Braga entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The dual aims of this event are: to discuss how Nanotechnology has the potential to provide solutions to societal challenges and to introduce the joint INL and StartUp Braga business incubator programme. This incubator aspires to encourage and stimulate growth in companies with nanotechnology-based solutions applied in the health, energy, food quality, and environment monitoring application areas.
This incubator is fully integrated within INL’s high-quality research infrastructure and provides a one-of-a-kind facility. For selected startups, the joint INL and StartUp Braga incubator programme provides on-going tailored guidance as well as a set of integrated RTD and business development services along the whole business incubation cycle.
Target Audience: Researchers, Entrepreneurs, Investors, University Technology Transfer Offices, Universities, Research and Technological Development Centres and Students.
