25 years of ITEA Roadshow - Finland

25 August 2023 | Online

This year, we celebrate 25 years of ITEA, the Eureka RD&I programme fostering software innovation and digital transition through funded collaborative projects. Since the start of ITEA in 1998, Finland has been a very strong and stable supporting country with nearly 120 ITEA projects and over 250 participating partners. Thanks to the support of Business Finland and ITEA, many impactful outcomes have been created by Finnish project partners, of which a few examples can be found in the ITEA Impact stream, and many ITEA projects with Finnish participation have received the ITEA Award of Excellence, recognising their high level of innovation, exploitation and impact on business and society.

25 years of ITEA Roadshow session - Finland

To continue this success and the creation of impact for Finnish organisations, Business Finland and ITEA have organised the '25 years of ITEA Roadshow session'. During this session, participants will be introduced to ITEA and its funding opportunities through Business Finland, and learned more from experienced ITEA project participants from Finland and they will have the opportunity to pitch a project idea and/or your organisation and find project partners.
