In addition to contracted R&D services and on-demand development, imec also has its own internal R&D activities. The purpose of these activities is to continuously grow our expertise, to be in close contact with the state-of-the art academic and industrial research players in life sciences globally, and to develop a strong IP portfolio allowing us to enable our industrial partnerships to bring value to the market. New and fundamental high-risk projects are driven by publicly-funded R&D projects and PhD students. Our vision is to collaborate with the world’s front-running academic players.
Imec is a strong partner for companies or academics at the helm of a challenging governmentally-funded fundamental R&D project, who seek for world-class talent to drive success.
