Spotlight on Advanced Technologies: Showcasing R&D supports available to Industry

University College Dublin (UCD) opens its doors to demonstrate the state-of-the-art expertise, technologies and facilities available to businesses to support their R&D activities. The programme will discuss industry-oriented analysis approaches in imaging, flow cytometry, research pathology, genomics, proteomics and natural & synthetic particulate and material characterization. Participants will have the opportunity to attend talks and facility tours as well as oneto-one discussions with technology experts where they can discuss tailored solutions to own R&D needs. During the event, research experts of the Celtic Advanced Life Science Innovation Network (CALIN) will be accessible to discuss the technical capabilities of the partner academic institutions, offering businesses potential to build R&D partnerships within and beyond UCD.

CALIN is an Ireland-Wales INTERREG operation funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government that aims to support the life sciences sector by initiating collaboration between partner universities and SMEs in the two regions. Visit for more information.
