    OpporNet has been designed and customized based on the Onvega technology (used in the first generations of GDMS and VegaRise developed from scratch in Sweden 2010-2014). This project has been developed and improved by long-term cooperation between INL (Intentional Nanotechnology Laboratory, Portugal) and Onvega AB (the creator of an information management tool for projects/organizations, Sweden) since 2016.
    The INL, located in Braga-Portugal was founded by the governments of Portugal and Spain to perform interdisciplinary research, deploy and articulate nanotechnology for the benefit of society.
    The Swedish-based company, Onvega, offers a responsive data management tool for projects/organizations. The solution combines big data coming from different teams, integrating them into one visual information platform.
