ITEA 2 Blue Book

The ITEA programme is a great European success story. Today, ITEA is the leading trans-national European co-operative R&D programme in software-intensive systems and essentially has put Europe back on the map in the emerging 'embedded intelligence' revolution. ITEA 2 now offers the crucial next step to maintain the momentum established by ITEA, building firmly on its success and lessons in a dramatically changing world.


Dramatic shift to embedded SiS
The core challenge of ITEA 2 is to face up to the dramatic shift to embedded SiS that is affecting all aspects of everyday life:

Maintaining European leadership

The current ITEA programme has played a key role in maintaining European leadership in embedded software-intensive systems (SiS) and services since its launch in 1999. It was the first major initiative of European industry and public authorities to recognise the emerging importance embedded and distributed systems.


Software is the key to the digital revolution that is an integral part of our industrial and societal future. Responding to the revolutionary challenges, ITEA 2 maintains the successful principal vision of ITEA, updated to the new global context, 'for Europe to maintain leadership in this new era of embedded Software-intensive Systems and Services building on key European strengths and industries'.
