National BioPhotonics and Imaging Platform Ė Ireland (NBIPI)

National Biophotonics Imaging Platform - NBIP Ireland



Launched in the Republic of Ireland, the National Biophotonics Imaging Platform is a groundbreaking scheme in the country that aims to extend and grow the biophotonics and imaging research sector. Biophotonics is a scientific study that synthesises the concepts of biology with the technological field of photonics. Biophotonics can be seen in a variety of different industries. The creation of the National Biophotonics Imaging Platform will focus on core parts of biophotonics.

Promoting excellence in graduate biophotonics training

The National Biophotonics Imaging Platform will focus on delivering key aims and targets in increasing the exposure of biophotonics. One aspect of this is to create graduate schemes in biophotonics and imaging. The Imaging Platform wants to encourage more graduates to choose biophotonics as a career path in order to strengthen the industry with fresh recruits who are passionate about this field of study. One path that organisations such as the National Biophotonics Imaging platform would like to promote is the inclusion of lasers in the sphere of biophotonics. Lasers work in a special way when it comes to biophotonics. Lasers have many aspects that are affected by biophotonics such as wavelength and frequencies. Laser technology is an exciting field in biophotonics that the Imaging Platform is being encouraged to promote to bring more graduates with ideas and intelligence into the industry.

Increase Irelandís image internationally

This focus on biophotonics in Ireland through the auspices of the National Biophotonics Imaging Platform is hoped to increase Irelandís academic reputation throughout the world. This will be achieved through incisive research programmes and workshops that will be carried out under the umbrella of the Imaging Platform. What this will do is create a domino effect where more academic institutions, research organisations and private individuals will want to focus on Irelandís growing skill and expertise in biophotonics and imaging. By carving out a space on an international stage, the National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform will make Ireland the place to visit for academics and researchers.

Make Ireland a stronger research platform

The organisation wants to focus on making Ireland a place where research flourishes in the biophotonics world. Due to the fact that biophotonics can only innovate when researchers come together to share ideas, the National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform wants to encourage research in key areas of biophotonics. These include molecular and cellular research. These are important factors in research in biophotonics because molecular and cellular aspects are the building blocks for complex biophotonic technologies.

At first glance, the idea of biophotonics and imaging in Ireland may seem difficult for a member of the general public to understand, Due to the complexity of the field of study, the National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform are dedicated to creating outreach initiatives with local communities about biophotonics and imaging. The best way that these could be achieved includes visiting local schools in urban and rural communities in the Republic of Ireland and encouraging young children to enquire about how biophotonics and imaging would affect them in their lives, such as how it can be used in electronic devices. Workshops, science fairs and events where schoolchildren learn about the importance of biophotonics are just one step that the Imaging Platform can take to spur future youth interest in this exciting industry.

As the world becomes smaller and increases connections in telecommunications and technology in general, biophotonics and imaging becomes central to how people will respond in an audiovisual world. The National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform will ensure that Ireland remains at the forefront of this new frontier.
