IMEC and the Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs have signed a co-funding contract to put up the IMEC Taiwan Innovation Centre. The research facility will expedite applied research projects with industry and academia that will result in electronic designs, components and technology solutions.

More specifically, the new R&D center will focus on a variety of applications in bioelectronics, MEMS and "green" electronics that are enabled through 3D system-package co-design and system-level evaluation.

The center will also facilitate and intensify the collaboration between IMEC and the Taiwan industry and academia. Plans call for ITIC to grow its research staff to more than 40 people over the next three years, IMEC said.

"As a semiconductor innovative applications center, ITIC will support the upward shift in Taiwan's technology value chain and contribute to the realization of Taiwan's strategic Innovation Plan," said Jung-Chiou Hwang, vice minister of economic affairs, Taiwan, in a statement. "It will accelerate open innovation that will result in locally owned IP in the area of intelligent electronics."
