IBM Launches First Nanotechnology Lab in Brazilian IT industry

IBM has launched a new experimental laboratory for nanotechnology research in Brazil. The NanoLab is part of a US$4 million investment within the IBM Research-Brazil lab in Rio de Janeiro.

The lab’s main focus will be on projects related to research in oil and gas, agriculture, and health across Latin America, and will work on building nanoscience-based technology prototypes meant to leverage the capabilities of Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, and big data.

“We want the NanoLab to be a hub for industrial science and technology in Brazil that attracts top research talent from around the world,” said Mathias Steiner, manager and research staff member, Industrial Technology & Science at IBM Research Brazil.
