AMBER - Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research - Dublin

AMBER provides a partnership between world-class materials science researchers and industry. AMBER is at the forefront of translating leading science into new discoveries and devices for the ICT, medical devices, pharmaceutical and industrial technology sectors. 

AMBER combines world-class fundamental and applied research activity within a vibrant culture of industrial engagement and commercialisation. Central to AMBER’s research remit are the collaborative projects performed with each of our industry partners. The industry partners are diverse, both in terms of sectors and scale, covering the four primary sectors of ICT, Medical Devices, Pharmaceuticals and Industrial Technologies. A primary objective of the AMBER centre is to create new knowledge and intellectual property, and to successfully transfer that knowledge to industry through licensing agreements, staff exchange and formal transfer of know-how. We work in conjunction with the technology transfer offices of TCD, UCC and the RCSI to achieve this. We offer industry the opportunity to cost effectively access research, innovation and infrastructure underpinned by world leading human capital.
