Merges and absorption
Main article: Merger of Intel
The history of Intel is filled with numerous transactions of absorption, many of which are described here.
In Europe Intel conducts active work for more than 30 years – its first office in Brussels, is open in 1969. Since 1989 on the production sites of Intel located in Leykslip (Ireland) releases modern solutions whereas total investments for the last twenty years into this region exceeded $7 billion.
In 2009 in Europe there were about 800 scientists of Intel. For all history of presence of the company in the region the set of important developments and opening was made here. The research projects of Intel which are carried out in Europe mention a broad spectrum of areas, including chips, the Software, mobile devices, nanotechnologies and also the products capable to increase quality of life and level of health of the population.
Intel Labs Europe (ILE) program
The mission of Intel Labs Europe consists in a research, development and release of the innovative solutions based on architecture of Intel and also in establishment of strong partnership with the European shareholders for the purpose of improving competitiveness of the region. By means of ILE the Intel company is going to integrate the initiatives and future investments in the program under the name Digital Europe. A main goal of this program is acceleration of rate of technology development of Europe and the European industry, increase in its flexibility and further technology equipping.
The center of the innovative developments in Ireland - after opening of research laboratory in Munich, the similar center of open research and development of the innovative solutions was started in Leykslip (County of Kildare), Ireland. The laboratory located here, Ireland Innovation Open Lab, is a part of an initiative of construction of network of the research centers in Europe about which was announced in January, 2009. By the end of 2009 more than 30 specialists worked here.
