Who we are

We are a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded centre with a diverse team of over 200 researchers located across Ireland’s leading universities and institutes of technology, working together to deliver research excellence, transitioning this research into market leading products with industry partners, and training future photonics research leaders. IPIC is one of a network of SFI Research Centres focused on Ireland’s national priority research areas.

Our outputs include 100 publications per year, with 40% in the top 10% journals, and over 20 PhD level trainees per year with over 60% departing to industry. Recent achievements include securing 37 awards in the highly competitive H2020 programme, representing an investment of €24M, and we have seen many of our technologies progress to market through companies such as Facebook Reality Labs, Agilent Technologies, Eblana Photonics and Rockley Photonics.

We are always exploring new partnerships, both academic and industry, and new members to join our team, from PhDs to senior academic leaders.
