With the COVID-19 pandemic, imec has taken several measures to protect the health and safety of the imec community and to limit the impact on the continuity of imec, on our operations, our research and our commitment to partners. We want to emphasize that imec is committed to keep on fulfilling its role as a global R&D center delivering to its partners and stakeholders. 

Since beginning of June, imec is gradually implementing its exit strategy combining homework with on-site presence, with strict adherence to safety measures (social distancing, hygiene, personal protection etc.).  We are very grateful for the ongoing flexibility of our entire staff and for continuing to work together as a team under challenging circumstances. These joint efforts enables imec to navigate through this crisis. Together we have succeeded in keeping imec operational and we are fully committed to keep our innovation engine running, delivering advanced technologies and solutions to our partners. 

Take good care of yourself, your colleagues and your family.
