A coalition of Irish universities and colleges came together today for an ambitious plan to develop "smart" drugs to fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Ten of the country's top third-level institutions will share expertise and technology in the emerging nanoscience field under the €32 million project.
The Inspire partnership, unveiled by Jimmy Devins, Minister of State for Science and Innovation, will be headed up by Trinity College, which opened the country's first nanoscience institute earlier this year.
The Higher Education Authority (HEA) allocated €31.6 million to Inspire, the largest funding allocation awarded to a consortium under the Government's Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions.
The scheme will allow around 500 researchers access to cutting-edge equipment including clean room facilities seen only in world-leading computer chip manufacturing companies.
