Spanish Minister of Digital Transformation and Public Service, José Luis Escriva said that IMEC has selected Malaga as its next location after signing an agreement in principle with the Spanish government in summer 2023 to establish itself in the country.

EuropaPress and other Spanish-language publications quoted Escriva speaking at a visit to the ICT Research Center of the University of A Coruna, on January 22. "The second center (of 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 Andalucia and with the Malaga City Council that the second IMEC plant in the world is installed there," they report him saying.

IMEC conducts world-leading research into semiconductors from its base in Leuven, Belgium, but also has separate centers and co-locations in many places around the world.

Escriva is reported saying the IMEC facilities in Malaga will be a "cutting-edge center for the design and prefabrication of the highest technology chips."
