IMEC project leaders report that the main result of this effort was the general exchange of information and general improvement of micro-electronics know-how across Europe. A Europe-wide research network in this field has been created due to this project.
During this project, 32 researchers from 19 universities, research institutes and industry in 10 EU Member States worked in residence at IMEC, on 21 research programmes. A wide range of published research (articles and papers) also resulted from this cooperation. The highest priority for this project was placed on giving access to university researchers and researchers from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). These two groups traditionally have fewer possibilities to access the type of sophisticated software engineering tools and expertise provided by IMEC.
