Welcome to the Trinity Centre for Biodiversity Research
The Trinity Centre for Biodiversity Research was launched in December 2008 by Sir David Attenborough. Based in the School of Natural Sciences, the TCBR brings together researchers from across Trinity College Dublin (TCD) to provide a broad base of expertise in a range of biodiversity research areas, enabling research to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries to encompass biological, social, economic, legal and political aspects of biodiversity. From basic blue skies research to practical solutions and applications for stakeholders, we use state of the art and innovative approaches to deliver excellence in biodiversity knowledge for capacity building and increased public awareness. This exciting combination of researchers allows novel synergistic collaborations that are crucial for the development of national, European and international policy, and strategic recommendations to ensure global environmental sustainability.
