The Council for Business with Britain (CBB) organized a field trip to Sri Lanka Institute of nanotechnology (SLINTEC) in Homagama on Wednesday 29th January 2014. Sri Lanka embarked on a new journey in science and technology development by incorporating the Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) as a public-private partnership between the Government of Sri Lanka and five leading Private sector companies. Since its inception, SLINTEC has achieved rapid results in both its directives of realizing success in Nanotechnology Research and Development, and initiating the building of a Nanotechnology Park in Sri Lanka.
