Did you know that UL is home to a research institute with a focus on convergent and translational health research called the HRI? Or that UL houses a research institute to investigate the scientific design and manufacture of structured materials - the Bernal Institute?
Did you know that UL hosts four large-scale SFI-funded research centres which are enhancing enterprise and industry connection, training students with critical, in-demand skills, and supporting regional development. LERO is focused on advancing the state-of-the-art in software engineering and related topics. SSPC is a hub of process innovation and advanced manufacturing for the pharmaceutical industry. CONFIRM is the Irish Centre for smart manufacturing. The SFI Centre for Research Training in Foundations of Data Science is training a cohort of PhD students with world-class foundational understanding in the horizontal themes of Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Machine Learning.
UL is also home to three Enterprise Ireland-funded Technology Centres which include
• PMTC which provides advanced technology solutions in pharmaceutical manufacturing
