The ITEA label is endorsed by all Eureka Member Countries and financial support can be provided according to national funding procedures.
In order to prepare a successful proposal, you need to be aware that there may be significant differences in funding procedures. You must therefore make sure that your project proposal fits within national public authorities' priorities and funding rules before you submit it to ITEA.
National funding applications
National applications for funding should be submitted after ITEA labelling (or earlier depedent on national procedures). Since the deadline for such submissions varies from country to country, each project partner (or each consortium’s national contact person) should get in touch with the relevant public authority’s contact person well in advance to know the deadline, the information to be gathered and/or the forms to be filled in.
Take into account the following:
- The ITEA label is a prerequisite to obtain funding from national public authorities, but an ITEA project label does not automatically ensure the funding of the project;
- Each project partner must apply to their national public authority for funding;
- Each public authority will decide on a per partner basis and according to the relevant national funding rules whether to fund a project or not;
- Funding contracts are directly dealt with between each project partner and the relevant funding public authority;
- Each project partner is responsible for providing the relevant public authority with all information concerning their project according to the relevant funding rules; and
- In addition to the FPP, the ITEA Office will provide the relevant public authorities with any available information necessary for making funding decisions.
National funding contacts
ITEA partners can apply for funding via their representative in the ITEA Authorities Committee (ITAC). Or, for countries not represented in the ITAC, they can apply via their Eureka National Project Coordinator. Here below you can find the countries involved in the ITAC and once you click on a country you can find the details of the representative(s). When available, a presentation or video of the eligibility criteria and funding outlook can be found here as well. The appropriate Eureka National Project Coordinator can be contacted via the Eureka website (select the country of your choice via the button 'Change country').
