 Microsistemas & Nanotecnologias






























INESC Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias (INESC MN) is a private, non-profit Research and Development institute created in January, 2002 from the former Solid State Technology group of INESC. INESC MN operates a Class 100/10 cleanroom with optical and e-beam lithography allowing nanoscale device fabrication.

INESC MN is dedicated to:

  • leading edge research and development in strategic technological areas of micro- and nanotechnologies and the application of these technologies to electronic, biological and biomedical devices;

  • advanced training of young scientists and engineers at the university, post-graduate and post-doctoral levels in micro- and nanotechnologies

  • transfer of technology to both Portuguese and international industries through collaborative research, contract research, prototyping and consulting



UPDATEDDoctoral Programme on Advanced Integrated Microsystems (AIM) - The application period for the FCT funded Doctoral Programme AIM will be between 1-31 May 2015. Detailed information can be found at the AIM website here...

SPINICUR Summer School: SPINICUR, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), involving five academic and four private sector partners ( is dedicated to an aspect of Spintronics – pure spin currents, their generation, detection and how the spin currents interact with the magnetization. The “SpinIcur Summer School 2015” will be held during 7 - 11 September 2015 in Braga, Portugal. and will be open to master and PhD students. More information can be found here...

PROSENSE WORKSHOP ON "Microfluidics and Biosensors for Point of Care Devices": Within the Marie Curie ITN PROSENSE ( INESC MN will organize a Workshop on 16 July 2015. The Workshop will take place at the Centro de Congressos of IST. Admission is open to the public. A preliminary program can be found here...
