Tyndall National Institute is a leading European research centre in cutting edge micro/nano, electronics and photonics hardware and systems. Central to Tyndall’s mission is delivering economic impact through research excellence. We work with industry and academia to transform research into products in our core market areas of communications, energy, environment, health and agri-tech. As the national institute for micro/nanoelectronics and photonics, and a research flagship of University College Cork, Tyndall employs over 500 researchers, engineers and support staff, with a cohort of 120 full-time graduate students. Together we generate around 250 peer-reviewed publications annually. Tyndall is home to a high-tech national research infrastructure unique in Ireland and is a national research asset.
Tyndall is to commence a major expansion of its research infrastructure and related footprint under provisions within the government’s National Development Plan (NDP) 2018-2027 (Project Ireland 2040). The investment will see Tyndall significantly expand, enhancing its central role as a key driver of economic impact from technology research and innovation. As a result of this investment, we will double in size over the NDP period and expand our international role as a leading global research institute. We intend to develop new and exciting capabilities in key emerging technologies within existing and new core areas of competence, and further strengthen our engagement with industry to boost the competitiveness of Irish start-up companies, indigenous SMEs and our global partners.
The NDP commits to upgrading and expanding Tyndall ‘to stay at the forefront of new technologies and build on its successful industry engagement model’ and to enable it ‘to respond to evolving ICT-related technology opportunities’ in a fast changing and competitive environment.
