Project Description

Description of the legal entity
Stichting Imec Netherlands forms part of the Holst Centre on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Holst Centre is an independent open-innovation R&D centre that develops generic technologies for Wireless Autonomous Transducer Solutions and Systems-in-Foil. A key feature of the Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia based around shared roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilisation that enables Host Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs.

Holst Centre was set up in 2005 by imec (Flanders, Belgium) and TNO (The Netherlands) with support from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Government of Flanders. It is named after Gilles Holst, a Dutch pioneer in Research and Development and first director of Philips Research. Located on High Tech Campus Eindhoven, Holst Centre benefits from the state-of-the-art on-site facilities. Holst Centre has over 180 employees from around 28 nationalities and a commitment from more than 45 industrial partners.

At Imec Netherlands applied research is conducted into Wireless Autonomous Transducer Solutions (WATS), aiming at delivering miniaturized, all-integrated autonomous and wireless devices. Two innovation themes are investigated within the WATS program: “wearable health systems (WHS)”and “intuitive internet of things (I2oT )”. The Intuitive Internet of Things (I2oT) is next on the horizon: connecting everybody and everything everywhere with data stored in the cloud, turning the massive amount of data in information to make the right decisions, to take the right actions exactly as we need or want. The I2oT is expected to manage the sustainability, complexity and safety of our world, and it will increase our comfort and wellbeing in many ways. The work for SCOTT will be done within this Imec research theme.
