AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research) is a Science Foundation Ireland funded centre that provides a partnership between leading researchers in material science and leading industries that include Mergon. It is jointly hosted in Trinity College Dublin (TCD) by CRANN and the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering (TCBE), in collaboration with University College Cork and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).
AMBER has a strong emphasis on linking industry to research programmes and the aim of the centre is to develop products that directly impact everyone’s quality of life such as the development of the next generation computer chips and new medical implants and pharmaceuticals that will improve patient care.
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, Mergon and other companies.
Mergon is collaborating with Amber to develop the next generation of materials that will allow our customers across all our industry sectors to solve their most taxing problems –
- Light weighting of components for the automotive industry.
- Improved barrier materials in medical device and nutraceutical packaging.
