Materials & Surface Science Institute

University of Limerick Foundation benefactors have made significant contributions towards the €14.43 million Materials and Surface Science Institute at the University.


State funding was also secured under the Higher Education Authority’s Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions.

This building facilitates advanced research in areas such as Structural Materials, Biomaterials, Active Materials and Sensors, Catalysis and Interface Science. The construction of a research building to accommodate laboratories in these fields was completed in May 2002.
