    ICOS, a three-year Coordination and Support Action (CSA) from the European Commission in the frame of Horizon Europe, was launched on 19 January 2023 with its kick-off meeting held in Brussels. ICOS aims to support the growth of the European Semiconductor and Semiconductor-based photonics industry through focused international research cooperation. The strategic importance of semiconductors and the dependence of Europe from other regions of the world were evidenced by the recent international crises. ICOS will play a significant role in helping our continent to regain sovereignty and leadership in that domain, in line with the objectives set out by the EU Chips Act.
