Information Technology for European Advancement
ITEA 2is a strategic pan-European programme for advanced pre-competitive R&D in software for Software-intensive Systems and Services (SiS). With 554 partners from 25 countries, is one of the main EUREKA clusterprogramme and works closely together with other EUREKA projects and the Framework Programmes of the European Commission.
The call for projects is organised in a two-step procedure, with potential participants first submitting project outlines for approval before delivering full project proposals.
