Intel, IMEC and Five Flemish Universities Open Flanders ExaScience Lab

10 Jun

Intel, IMEC, the Flemish Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT) and five Flemish universities announced the opening of the ExaScience Lab in Leuven, Belgium.

IMEC is Europe?s largest independent research center in nanoelectronics and nano-technology. Its staff of more than 1,750 people includes over 550 industrial residents and guest researchers. Imec?s research is applied in better healthcare, smart electronics, sustainable energy, and safer transport.

The lab?s goal is to achieve breakthroughs in power reduction and reliability, an effort critical to extend today?s supercomputer architecture to exascale levels of performance, or speeds 1,000 times faster than today?s supercomputers. The first scientific application the ExaScience Lab will address is predicting “space weather,” and the effects to safety and security on Earth. The ExaScience Lab is the latest member of Intel Labs Europe.
