International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), in Braga, Portugal, a fully international research organization in Europe in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. INL is the result of a joint decision of the Governments of Portugal and Spain, taken on November 19, 2005 at the XXI Portugal-Spain Summit, in Évora.

INL will provide a research environment promoting an interdisciplinarity effort in addressing the major challenges in the emerging areas of Nanobiotechnology, Nanoelectronics, Nanomedicine and Materials Science at Nanoscale. The key research activities are based on existing areas in Portugal and Spain, as well as on new strategic development areas where researchers will be hired. The Laboratory is planned for 200 scientists, about 100 PhD students, and supporting technical and administrative staff.

INL will closely work with international research centers, local and global industry and universities.
