About ITEA 2

We stimulate and coordinate industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D by bringing together partners from industry, universities and research institutes in strategic projects. We provide the link between funding, technology and software engineering skills.


ITEA 2 is defined as a two-phase programme, with four Calls for Projects in each phase. Duration of projects is three years maximum. 


ITEA's current set of 85 projects (of which 59 are completed and 26 are running) with 641 partners from 26 countries has established a solid basis for further development. Many of these have led to the creation of new products, and some to new start-ups.


By the end of the current ITEA programme, more than 9,500 person-years of R&D will have been invested. The ambitions of ITEA 2 are to mobilise a total of 20,000 person-years over the full eight-year duration.


The first ITEA 2 Call for Projects was very successful. The second ITEA 2 Call for Projects opened mid January 2007
