Bernal Institute combines the Bernal Project, the Materials and Surface Science Institute and the Stokes Institute into a single entity – to establish UL as a world leader in key research areas where we will deliver real world impact.
The University of Limerick’s research programmes are unrivalled in terms of real world impact. We benchmark ahead of our peers in terms of patents, campus spinout companies, job creation and innovation. The generation of high quality research aimed at stimulating start-up companies and enhancing existing enterprises has been a central focus of UL’s research strategy.
Bernal Institute resides in the Faculty of Science and Engineering and is comprised of researchers from scientific and engineering disciplines who have a strong track record in translating their fundamental knowledge and expertise into solutions for a range of academic and industrial challenges.
Bernal Institute will help nurture Ireland’s research leaders of the future and support Ireland’s progress for many generations to come. The Institute has already established a significant track record in generating research impact.
