About Us


Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) is a pioneer in nano and advanced technology & research in Sri Lanka.  Our research is primarily focussed on six areas namely; advanced materials, smart textiles, advanced agriculture, synthetic biology, synthetic organic chemistry & nanomedicine as well as process and engineering systems. SLINTEC is the first publicprivate research institute in Sri Lanka, and we’re proud to have made significant progress in being a change catalyst in the field of science for over a decade.

We’ve focussed all our resources to create technologies that will solve many pressing problems in emerging nations such as Sri Lanka. These problems may include, but aren’t limited to, affordable food security, affordable and clean energy safe drinking water, healthcare and sustainable economic development. In aligning with our founding mission, we’ve dedicated all our resources to find innovative and internationally competing solutions to these issues.

It is our aim to build a futuristic nanotechnology and science park with advanced facilities to support all interested stakeholders to pursue their research & development. We will provide all our clients with experienced and competent research personnel along with the right tools to help design and develop something of great value. While our primarily focus was on nano and advanced technologies, we’ve expanded our research portfolio to include synthetic organic chemistry & nutraceuticals.

With the expertise and success that we’ve already gained, we wish to embark on new areas of research that are relevant to the development of the industrial base in Sri Lanka within an internationally competitive landscape.



“Inventions Beyond the Horizon”
We want to play our part in the advancement of nanotechnology research and development. We hope to bring great minds and great technologies together in our pursuit to discover and develop products that change the way we live.
