Imec also noted that it employed 1,895 people, at the end of the year, an 8% increase over 2009, which included 336 residents – visiting researchers from partner companies and institutes - and 208 Ph.D. students.

“Imec has the ambition to be a pioneer in sustainable innovation, aiming at tackling the grand challenges the world is facing. I’m convinced that a major part of the answers for an efficient and sustainable healthcare system, for sustainable urbanization, and for a sustainable use of energy, will come from technology innovation at the borderline of different disciplines, and where semiconductor technology plays an indispensable role. That’s exactly imec’s strength;” commented Luc Van den hove, President and CEO at imec. “To sustain our growth, we will diversify our research and offering to serve a much broader industry than we are used to work with, expanding our borders beyond the semiconductor food chain towards energy companies, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, phone companies, wireless communications companies, display developers, and many more.”
