An Taoiseach Enda Kenny has launched the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick, an €86 million science and engineering research institute comprised of 20,000m2 of high quality, multi-purpose research space in the new Science and Engineering Zone at UL.
The Bernal Institute incorporates UL’s Materials and Surface Sciences Institute, the Stokes Research Institute and the Bernal Project into one unified flagship research Institute to showcase and build on the University’s significant strengths in research in Science and Engineering. A key aspect of the Institute is the recruitment of world leading researchers as Bernal Professors, with seven of a total of ten new professorial chairs filled. The Institute houses over 260 researchers who work in and across research themes in advanced materials, manufacturing and processing engineering and fluid dynamics.
