THE BEST TEAM FOR THE BEST RESULTS

OVER A DECADE AS A REGIONAL REFERENCE POINT FOR NANOTECHNOLOGY AND ADVANCED MATERIALS

OUR STORY

LANOTEC was founded on August 31 th , 2004, as a result of the collaboration of the Costa Rican Ministry of Science and Technology (MICIT), the Consejo Nacional de Rectores -National Rectors Council in english- (CONARE), the Centro Nacional de Alta Tecnología – National Center for High Technology in English – (CeNAT), the high-tech industry sector and international collaborators such as NASA.

The first funding was provided by the CRUSA Foundation and MICIT-CONICIT, while CeNAT-CONARE assigned over 500 square meters for offices and equipment. We are currently developing a clean room type 100.

Our mission is to carry out research in the field of nanotechnology, contributing simultaneously to the technological progress of Costa Rica through the creation and transfer of scientific knowledge and the human resource training.

LANOTEC is a research space with the maximun respect for life, human rights and the environment. Products and processes developed in our lab must to increase life quality and decrease contamination. We focus on creating rapid transitions for ideas with the potential to be developed into business from the lab and into the markets. We expect to further develop LANOTEC into the standard for research and teaching on nanotechnology, not only in Costa Rica but also in the region.
