Welcome to ITEA 2

ITEA 2, the follow-up to the successful ITEA programme, is a strategic pan-European programme for advanced pre-competitive R&D in software for Software-intensive Systems and Services (SiS).

ITEA 2 stimulates and supports projects that will give European industry a leading edge in the area of SiS (in which software represents a significant segment in terms of system functionality, system development cost & risk and system development time).

Our ambition is to mobilise a total of 20,000 person-years over the full eight-year period of the programme, requiring a significant increase in investment . This ambition is based on experience in ITEA, the need to further close the gap in R&D investment (3% of GDP, Lisbon objective) and the ever growing importance of SiS.

As one of the main EUREKA cluster programmes ITEA 2 has close links with other EUREKA projects and the Framework Programmes of the European Commission. Our projects are supported financially by all 36 members of the EUREKA framework.
