Trinity College Dublin and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) have opened the second phase of the university’s major materials and bio-engineering research centre, which is expected to generate 350 research posts by 2025.

The second phase development of Amber, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Materials and Bio-Engineering Research, will have a six-year budget of €117million, the university said on 24 June.

Of this, €40m will come from the foundation while Amber is expected to raise a further €77m in cash and in-kind support from companies partnered with Amber and from other non-exchequer sources. These would include the EU and the university’s international research activities.
