The National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) was born in 2001 as a collaborative initiative between the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), the University of Alberta (UAlberta) and the Government of Alberta.

A world-class collaborative research platform

NINT established a unique nanotechnology collaboration hub in a $52.2 million, 20,000m2 purpose-built facility on UAlberta campus in Edmonton that has supported industry while attracting and developing world-class talent. Together, NINT partners opened new doors to nanotechnology development and advanced the commercialization of breakthrough technologies.

A new Nanotechnology Initiative

NRC and the UAlberta have now renewed their collaborative research partnership through a new bilateral Nanotechnology Initiative. This initiative will let NRC and the UAlberta continue to expand Canadian nanotechnology capacity and foster breakthrough research aligned to strategic priorities.

New collaborative research project updates coming soon! In the meantime, learn more about nanotechnology research and collaboration at the University of Alberta and the National Research Council!
