Amber research laboratory given the green light

A research centre that will develop novel materials for use in technologies ranging from medical devices to microelectronics is being set up in Dublin.

Amber, the Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research centre was announced on 24 October and is a joint public private investment. The Irish government is providing €35 million via Science Foundation Ireland and another €23m will come from 18 industrial partners who will have the rights to exploit the discoveries made there.

The centre will support almost 100 researchers and staff at its base at Trinity College Dublin within the Crann nanotechnology research centre. Other academic partners include the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and University College Cork.
