Successful first ICOS workshop in Grenoble in April 2023

The first ICOS workshop “Sustainable Electronics and International Cooperation On Semiconductors”, a 3 days event organized with the SiNANO Institute, took place on April 26-28th in Grenoble, France. It gathered very high level experts, researchers and industrials of the field, with the objective to share their works and thoughts and open the debate on key issues such as sustainability in the world of electronics, or the Chips acts. It also aimed at facilitating international cooperation and pave the way for future collaborations.

We wish to thank very sincerely all the participants and speakers who all contributed to this successful event by their relevant questions and presentations. Also, we had the chance to welcome representatives from the European Commission EISMEA, IRDS and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprises and speakers from Japan for specific sessions about European Innovation Council programmes and helps startups can benefit from, roadmaps, and presentations of the semiconductors market in Japan and how we could work together to face some challenges in the field.
