– To ensure that the research carried out has an impact on the improvement of university teaching, and vice versa.

VISION

To be the Institute for research in nanoscience and reference materials with broad national visibility and growing international projection, attracting the best young research talent with a dynamic, flexible and collaborative organization.

VALUES

To achieve this vision, the values on which INMA’s activity is based are:
– Ethics and honesty
– Excellence and quality
– Responsibility (scientific and social)
– Creativity
– Interdisciplinarity
