Leveraging the know-how they have built over the years, our academic researchers conduct strategic research with a focus on three high-impact initiatives: Everything Connected, Data Science and Distributed Trust. Digitization brings along a number of global, digital, disruptive trends that will have a substantial impact on Flanders, as well as on the rest of the world. Based on imec’s ability to contribute with top-level academic expertise in combination with the valorization potential for the Flemish industry, imec has identified three areas in which we set up dedicated high-impact initiatives.
"Our three High-Impact Initiatives are long-term programs in which we want to maintain and strengthen our research excellence. We work together with industry to develop dedicated roadmaps to address a number of grand research challenges for each high-impact initiative,” Thomas Kallstenius, Vice-President Research & Technology at imec.
