2021 Review: Looking For New Equilibria ... Amid A Microchip Shortage

Imec CEO, Luc Van den hove, shares his perspectives of 2021

  • One year ago, I was asked to make a number of predictions for 2021. As expected, 2021 was marked by the search for new equilibria – and some important first steps have been taken:
    • We had to find new ways to collaborate – in a world that suddenly became much more complex.
    • Economy and ecology proved to be two sides of the same coin.
    • Imec reaffirmed itself as a safe haven for our partners and the broader industry in stormy weather.
  • Still, the work continues – as a fifth wave of the coronavirus pandemic is upon us, and a host of other challenges need our immediate attention as well.
