Located on 50 Acres of lush land, tranquil and verdant, creating an ideal space for ‘thinking’. Perfectly connected via highways, surrounded by a knowledge hub of universities and only 45 minutes from the commercial centre that is Colombo, the Park offers a perfect synergy of serenity and convenience.
The Park creates opportunities for all businesses to develop new products through a collaborative innovation process. Taking them from research through development toward commercialization. The foundation for this framework is the Nanotechnology Centre of Excellence, which marks the first phase of the development of the park.
The Park is set up to be an open canvass, a framework of support ensuring that companies are able to drive innovation with unencumbered focus and precision.
The Nanotechnology Park will enable companies, organizations and institutes to invest and develop their research centers, incubation facilities and pilot plants within the environment of an Advanced Science and Technology Park. Companies will have access to high-end research equipment and instruments as well as highly-specialized scientists and researchers at the NCE.
Investment Landscape: The Government of Sri Lanka has maintained an undivided focus on growth and development and has great ambitions of making Sri Lanka a dynamic global hub in Aviation, Energy, Knowledge, Logistics and Commerce. Sri Lanka is benefiting from political stability and rapid infrastructure development such as new highways, sea ports, airports and power plants. The Government is increasing its emphasis on education, research and development and has made noteworthy provisions and financial incentives in the furtherance of R&D in Sri Lanka. These factors make Sri Lanka very attractive to any company seeking a highly educated, qualified and talented workforce.
SLINTEC intends to provide the maximum tax benefits for specialists and experts working in Nanotechnology and the maximum incentives for companies to set up facilities the Nanotechnology Park and to invest in Nanotechnology R&D in Sri Lanka.

Collaborative Advantages: In addition to the Open Innovation framework offered by the NCE, the Park will include satellite offices from leading organizations in Law, Accounting, Marketing, Procurement and Logistics. These services are all geared to enable companies to move forward with their research, product development and commercialization with minimal delays and maximum convenience.
Access to Talent: In addition to boasting a well educated general workforce proficient in English, Sri Lanka has a talented pool of scientists. With high quality local universities in proximity to the Park, companies will have access to some of the best and brightest young scientists in the region. Leveraging on the success of SLINTEC in the last few years the Park is also able to attract leading scientists from the world over to take up term based tenures within the park.
A truly multicultural and accepting country with well developed amenities and services, you and your team are guaranteed to feel at home.
Nanotechnology Centre of Excellence (NCE)
The nucleus of the this endeavor, the Nanotechnology Centre of Excellence (NCE) will offer a wide range of essential centralized services that enables the hub and spoke concept driving operations across the Park. Most of the land in the Park is reserved as Tenant Development Areas dedicated for incubation, corporate research and business development centers, pilot plants and start-up companies.
SLINTEC is currently focused on developing Phase 1 that will be a state-of-the art building for the NCE, which will contain the following elements:
1) Centre of Research & Innovation (R&I)
2) Incubation for taking Research into Commercialization
3) Corporate Research & Business Development (R&BD)
4) Nanotechnology focused departments of other Institutes
5) Technology Commercialization Centre (TCC)
6) Administrative Centre & essential Centralized Services
7) Library, Auditorium & Accommodation for visiting Researchers
The NCE will play host to a series of high tech labs with state-of-the-art equipment managed and operated by a highly skilled team of scientists. Meeting rooms, conference halls and even rooms designed purely to drive creative thought through brainstorming sessions are all available to organizations residing in the Park.
