Research funded by the EC
Imec plays a prominent role in the European R&D scene. We strongly contribute to programs such as HORIZON2020, ECSEL, and the KETS. One of the challenges in Europe is to bridge this valley of death from academic research to industrial innovation. This is exactly the area where imec contributes.
