IMEC opens business development office in China
Keywords: IMEC, China
IMEC have opened a business development office in Shanghai to strengthen the interaction with Chinese companies and to set up new partnerships in China.
IMEC sees several opportunities in China ranging from R&D activities, over development of products for the home market such as sensors and systems-on-chip (SoC), which are increasingly being used in information and communication appliances, to training designers in state-of-the-art and advanced technologies for system design.
The office in Shanghai will ease the interaction with Chinese companies and will improve the information flow between IMEC and its Chinese contract partners. It will also enhance the communication between Chinese companies and IMEC with respect to new strategies, new programs and new technical results.
Besides bringing its own know-how to the Chinese industry, IMEC also wants to form a bridge for its spin-off companies to bring their technology to the Chinese market.
