Welcome to ITEA 2

ITEA 2, the follow-up of 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 system functionality, system development cost & risk, system development time).

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

ITEA 2 is one of the main EUREKA clusterprogramme and works closely together with other EUREKA projects and the Framework Programmes of the European Commission. Our projects are supported financially by all 36 members in the EUREKA framework.
