INEGI concludes expansion of facilities to a total of 9,267 m2 and reinforces laboratory and experimental infrastructure

05 April 2022
Over 410 m2 of laboratory infrastructure and 585 m2 of engineering areas comprise the new space added to INEGI's facilities, resulting in a total space of 9,267 m2.

The intervention, which started at the end of 2020, is in line with the strategic investment plan started in 2018, which foresaw an investment in the updating and reinforcement of laboratory and experimental tools, in the reinforcement and creation of new scientific and technological skills, in the promotion of internationalization, and the strengthening of business development's structure and processes.

As Alcibíades Guedes, chairman of the Board of Directors of INEGI, explains, "the creation of new capabilities based on laboratory and experimental infrastructure, as well as the organic growth of human resources, naturally required an expansion of the laboratory and engineering area. We believe that this step, together with the others that make up our strategic plan, will be decisive to reinforce INEGI's role as a promoter of scientific and technological innovation in the coming years".

The total investment in the expansion of the facilities was around 2.2 million euros and had a co-financing of 1.3 million euros, through the Technological Infrastructure (IT) measure of the Região Norte - Centros de Interface do Programa Norte 2020. As a Center of Technological Interface (CIT), INEGI received co-funding from the Norte 2020 Program, the Innovation Fund, Technology Transfer and Circular Economy (FITEC) and the INTERFACE Program, for the execution of this strategic plan.
