Logo Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Industrial


The INTI was created in 1957, at a time when a number of national were emerging with the aim of setting in motion public investment, science and technology on a scheduled basis. Its first laboratories were located at the Technological Park Miguelete, in a plot of land of 19 hectares, in the municipality of General San Martín, province of Buenos Aires. At present, there are about thirty centers, in addition to administrative and support areas in this place. Today the INTI participates in Regional and Multipurpose Centers all over the country,  that generate research and network development to accompany and promote industrial growth in each province. This expansion has enabled the institute to cover a wide range of industrial specialties in coordination with universities, state-owned laboratories, state-owned companies, business chambers and other domestic and foreign organizations associated with the technological activity.

Since its origins, the INTI was unique in that it integrated business chambers and industries in the management scheme of its centers so as to ensure that any activities developed would be aligned with the concrete needs and demands of the industrial sector. At the same time, the purpose of linking companies to centers has been to facilitate the development of innovations that, given their size, are beyond the possibilities of only one company on its own.

With highly specialized professionals and laboratories fitted with adequate instruments and equipment – in some cases, unique in the region –, the INTI’s current capacities cover almost all industrial areas.
