The Minister for Public Transformation and Public Service, José Luis Escrivá, has announced that Málaga will host the research and development (R&D) center that the IMEC —acronym in English for the Interuniversity Center for Microelectronics– will install in Spain. Although last June the Government had already announced the intention of IMEC – which currently only has an R&D center in Louvain (Belgium) – to bring its new facilities to Spain, their location was still unknown. . “The second center (of the IMEC) that is going to be created in Spain is going to be located in Malaga. In recent weeks we have been working very intensely and with very good collaboration with the Junta de Andalucía and with the Malaga City Council that the second IMEC plant in the world is installed there,” he detailed. “We have already closed the negotiation process with the Board and the City Council and now we will close the final conditions in the coming days,” he added. The IMEC is the world’s leading institute for semiconductor research and development and has around 5,000 researchers from 95 countries and around 600 industrial partners, including large international companies in the sector.
