Imec plans 200 million Euro investment

Imec, the microelectronics research center based at Leuven, Flanders, is planning an investment of some 200 million Euro over the next few years for the construction of a new sterile room and associated equipment for the development of smaller new-generation chips.

Imec has developed into the largest independent research center in Europe in the field of microelectronics and information and communication systems.

A non-profit organization, it has an annual budget of 120 million Euro, with 23 per cent of this funded by the Flemish Government. The majority results from contract research for firms such as Intel, AMD, ST Microelectronics, Philips, Alcatel Bell, Barco, Agfa Gevaert, Innogenetics, Umicore and Bekaert (FF).
