PO phase

How to submit a Project Outline

 A Project Outline (PO) must be a concise (max. 15 pages) document, clearly explaining your project idea and goals, as well as the chances of successful exploitation of the results after the project is completed.


It must be prepared according to the PO guidelines, using the PO template and the mandatory project statistics-sheet. All these documents are included in one zip-file.


You should submit your PO to the ITEA 2 Office for technical evaluation by the ITEA 2 Steering Group. Based on the evaluation results and the feedback of the Public Authorities, the ITEA 2 Board Support Group decides which proposals are accepted or rejected. If your proposal is approved, you'll be invited to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP).


Project Outlines have to be submitted by 30 March 2007, in digital format, either by email to

[email protected] or by uploading them to our website.


Each partner in the project consortium must submit a Letter of Intent (LoI). The signed LoI must be sent to the ITEA Office (by postal mail - see contact for the address) by 17 April 2007. To inform us, you may send a copy by fax in advance. These letters must be:
