The National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) is a global centre of excellence for training and research in bioprocessing. NIBRT is located in a new, world class facility in Dublin, Ireland.
This facility is purpose built to closely replicate a modern bioprocessing plant with state of the art equipment.
NIBRT arose from a innovative collaboration between University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University and the Institute of Technology, Sligo. NIBRT was primarily funded by the Government of Ireland through Ireland's inward investment promotion agency, IDA Ireland (Industrial Development Agency), which is responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland.
NIBRT offers a quality training and research experience not previously possible anywhere in the world.

NIBRT's Culture defines the desired ethos of the Institute and how we interact with our colleagues and clients.
