Our research expertise, advanced instrumentation and state of the art facilities are helping us to deliver on the promise of nanotechnology.
We are unique
The National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) combines the best of a university research environment with the best of a national research lab.
Our many advantages include expertise across multiple disciplines—because complex problems require integrated solutions. For us, collaboration is not only possible – it’s essential.
Our versatile space
Located in Edmonton, NINT’s $52.2 million, 20,000m2 multiple lab facility features some of the ‘quietest’ laboratories in the world by limiting the impact of noise from mechanical vibrations and electro-magnetic interference.
Our state-of the art research institute is the hub of nanotechnology R&D in Canada, uniting academic and business communities in the search for leading edge solutions.
