The aim of this research group is to study systems at the nanometer scale. In particular they study molecules, atomic layers with thickness in the nanometer range and atomically clean surfaces. The group tries to find out which is the atomic or molecular structure and the specific electronic properties derived from the low-dimensionality of the systems.
The development of nanotechnology & bio-medical technology at ITRC focuses on the surface science. To better understand the interactions between the material (majorly silicon based) surface condition and the applied chemical agents under different environmental conditions, ITRC has developed a variety of methods to modify the material surface, to examine the surface characteristic, and to probe the interaction phenomena.

ICON is aimed at providing such interactions for a broad set of members. Managed by Rice University's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology, ICON activities ensure effective nanotechnology stewardship through risk assessment, research and communication.
INL- International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is the first, and so far the only one, fully international research organization in Europe in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It has an international legal framework similar to the few international laboratories in other areas located in Europe like CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research at Geneva, ESO - European Southern Observatory, EMBL - European Molecular Biology Laboratory, ESRF - European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The new laboratory is being established by Portugal and Spain, but in the future will be open to the membership of other countries of Europe and other regions of the world.
Over the last decade, a number of techniques, collectively referred to as Severe Plastic Deformation ('SPD'), have emerged as a promising approach for the production of bulk ultrafine-grained materials. The nanoSPD Steering Committee serves to coordinate research efforts in nanoSPD and to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and information relating to all aspects of the nanoSPD field.
ISO Committee TC 229 addresses standardization in the field of nanotechnologies. Specific tasks include developing standards for: terminology and nomenclature; metrology and instrumentation, including specifications for reference materials; test methodologies; modelling and simulations; and science-based health, safety, and environmental practices.
