AMBER develops training and educational programmes which impact all levels of the formal education system from primary school to fourth level.
AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research) is a Science Foundation Ireland funded centre that provides a partnership between leading researchers in materials science and industry. Materials science has been described as the science of stuff! We are researching materials that will transform everyday products of the future, from mobile phones to knee implants, batteries to beer bottles. AMBER brings together Ireland’s leading material science researchers working across the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Bioengineering and Medicine; with an international network of collaborators and companies.
The clustering of material science research expertise, state of the art infrastructure and a team of professional support staff has enhanced Ireland’s international reputation in materials science research and driven increased investment from industry. Ireland’s International ranking in the areas of nanoscience and materials science has increased from 6th and 8th respectively in 2013 when the Centre was established to 2nd and 5th in 2018. This ranking is based on publications and citations.
