Imec Reports Four Percent Growth for 2013 Fiscal Year End —Continues to Accelerate Innovation Through Global Collaborations and Technological Breakthroughs in Nanoelectronics—

Leuven, Belgium | Posted on April 24th, 2014

The 332 million euro figure includes the revenue generated through industrial commitment from international partners, collaborations with universities worldwide and funds from European research initiatives, a yearly grant from the Flemish government totaling 48.6 million euro, and a 4.6 million euro grant from the Dutch government to support the Holst Centre.



"2013 has been a productive year and I am proud to report these solid financial figures given the challenging macro-economic climate and the ongoing consolidation in the semiconductor industry segment in which we operate," said Luc Van den hove, president and CEO at imec, "This year imec has succeeded in attracting more research partnerships, while continuing to foster existing relationships. Several new collaborations in the domain of healthcare with leading organizations including Janssen Pharmaceutica, Johns Hopkins University, TEL, Pacific Biosciences, Panasonic, JSR, and BioTelemetry underscore the world-class research we offer to this market. We're confident that our continued breakthrough research, leveraging our proven nanoelectronics track record, will lead to novel instruments for patient care and medical advancements."



"Furthermore, this past year we intensified our partnership with ASML, reflecting our efforts to strengthen our collaboration with the leading suppliers of the IC industry," added Van den hove. "These suppliers are vital contributors to our innovation hub, and increased interactions between IC manufacturers and suppliers will be essential to implement the next steps in innovation and scaling. Imec, as a neutral R&D organization offering the deep expertise, IP sharing models and talent, will continue to foster closer interactions at earlier stages in process development."
