Project Process & Schedule
Submiting a project in ITEA 2
ITEA 2 offers once a year the opportunity to submit research project proposals in the domain of software-intensive systems and services. For this purpose, a Call is organised each year starting with a two-day brokerage event. In a two-step procedure, the quality of the project proposal is evaluated and improved, finally leading to a selection of high quality project proposals that receive the official ITEA label. The ITEA label provides project partners with the possibility of applying for public funding from their national authorities.
Project consortia with at least two different partners from two different countries, of which one must be a EUREKA Member Country and another one either a EUREKA Member Country or a EUREKA Associated Country,
can submit any idea that fits in the domain of software-intensive systems and services. Project consortia can be composed of representatives from large industry, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), research institutes, universities and user organisations (profit or non-profit). The main characteristics of an ITEA project are that it is industry driven, technically innovative and business oriented. Strong involvement and leadership of industrial partners is required. Projects involve between 40 and 300 person-years and typically last up to three years.
Each Call follows a two-step procedure:
- Producing a Project Outline (PO):
This PO gives a short overview of a project, mainly to describe the project goals, innovation, targeted business impact and consortium. Project Outlines which are positively evaluated are invited for the second step;
- Writing a Full Project Proposal (FPP):
This FPP describes the project plan and how the project will be executed and managed. Approved FPPs will receive the ITEA 2 label.
The public authorities are fully involved in the evaluation and labelling of projects. After labelling, partners must apply for funding through their national public authorities. The ITEA 2 label is endorsed by all EUREKA Member Countries.
Please see “PO phase” and “FPP phase” for further details and the full PO and FPP selection criteria.
