Canada's largest nanotechnology institute committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) is a global leader in discovering and developing smart and functional materials, connected devices, next generation energy systems and, therapeutics and theranostics. These discoveries by our scientists and engineers are fundamentally changing our world and helping solve some of humanity's most pressing issues. Our 285, 000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility meets the highest scientific standards for control of vibration, electromagnetic radiation, temperature and humidity making it a global centre of excellence for nanotechnology and its applications.
Why is nanotechnology important? It is about creating new materials and improving ways of manufacturing products. To be more efficient, better, stronger and cheaper. Also improving the economy, environment and society. To achieve societal impact and a sustainable future, WIN has now mapped its thematic areas with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
