Intel announced a collaboration with Belgian research institute IMEC to open a high performance computing (HPC) lab in Leuven.
The project is subsidized by the regional Flemish government and will focus on the development of technologies for future microprocessors. Intel researchers will collaborate with experts from IMEC, and scientists of the universities of Leuven, Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels and Hasselt.
IMEC is the largest nanotechnology research institute in Europe and has been working together with Intel since 1993. The chip giant already has a HPC-lab in France, the lab in Leuven will be the second out of five labs that Intel plans to build in Europe. Details about how much Intel will invest in the project and when the lab will be opened are unknown.
