SERIS thinks along with IMEC

Imec worldwide renown in the field of nano-electronics and digital technology

Imec enjoys worldwide renown for its pioneering work in the field of nano-electronics and digital technology.

Some 3,500 scientists from more than 70 countries provide breakthrough ideas and applications in healthcare, mobility, logistics and energy.

Imec has offices in Belgium, the Netherlands, Taiwan, the US, China, India and Japan. Its head office is situated in Leuven and that’s where SERIS comes into the picture. Since 2012, we provide static surveillance and reception services to the site in Leuven.

Good things grow. In 2014, Imec started the construction of a new, high-tech laboratory. The on-site security facilities were stepped up once the construction works for the new cleanrooms started; we temporarily provided swing barriers and a badge access control system for contractors.

SERIS Security stands for an overall approach. Based on a security QuickScan, we drew up conclusions and proposals for improving the risk management, such as the implementation of an e-cloud visitor management system with several kiosks efficiently controlling both the entry and car parks. We also continue to carry out nightly guard tours in offices and laboratories, with instructions and reports being facilitated by NFC-tags within the management platform MySERIS.

Both parties are quite happy with the cooperation. The continuous expansion of the site results in a continuous search for new solutions to ensure the security in this ever-evolving international knowledge hub. Through the development of a new application, supported by verifications through the Internet of Things, we can keep track of the permanent flow of material, people and knowledge.
