NIBEC - the Nanotechnology and Integrated BioEngineering Centre is a well established world-class research complex at the University of Ulster's Jordanstown campus. NIBEC represents a consolidation of research groups, associated with advanced material types used in medical devices, electronics, photonics, tissue engineering, nanotechnology, microfluidics, sensors, MEMS, optical and environmental devices. The centre is based within the Engineering Research Institute (ERI).

The purpose-built facilities house some of the most sophisticated nano-fabrication, biological and characterisation equipment in the world. NIBEC is staffed by an internationally recognised and well experienced team of researchers and academics working predominantly at the interface of bioengineering and nanotechnology.

The RTD work for the Aqua-Pulse project will be carried out by the Photocatalysis Research Group.

The group is internationally recognised for research programmes involving the preparation and characterisation of photocatalytic materials with application towards environmental remediation, medical device decontamination and solar energy harvesting. Initially research focussed on the photocatalytic purification of water contaminated with persistent organic chemicals e.g. pesticides, and the disinfection of water contaminated with disinfectant resistant pathogens.
