Challenges & Impact stories

Impact is one of the main ambitions in ITEA. Impact on business, on the market, on society. Without impact, a project will not be successful in ITEA. This is a key value in ITEA, and impact and potential impact are central during the project lifecycle: in project evaluation, monitoring, closure and in communication of the results.

Many ITEA projects have achieved incredible results and most of these successes could not have been achieved without the (financial) support of the national Public Authorities. They have put their trust in these projects and supported them with public funds, making it possible for the project partners to get the most out of it. In return, ITEA is now gathering project impact stories to show in what way they solve key societal challenges and have an impact on business, on the market and on society.

All impact stories will be collected in this ITEA Impact stream. The ITEA Impact stream is a living publication that consists of 2 main elements: 7 main societal challenges and a set of impact stories showcasing the impact highlights of successful ITEA projects.

Create your own personal ITEA Impact stream by choosing the challenges, countries and topics of your interest and be inspired by the results!

Please note that over time more impact stories will be added to the ITEA Impact stream

TESTOMAT Project Impact story

Smart Engineering · 27 November 2023

In software development, reliability and agility often seem like opposing forces. This issue is aggravated by the increasing complexity of software and the constant drive towards faster release cycles for maximum market impact. The goal of ITEA’s TESTOMAT Project was to allow software teams to increase development speed without sacrificing quality. To achieve this goal, the project advanced the state of the art in test automation for software teams, moving towards a more agile and automated development process. The project focused on providing software teams with personalised roadmaps for improving their automated testing in a cost-efficient manner.

APPSTACLE Impact story

Smart Mobility · 01 December 2022

In the automotive domain, there is an increasing demand for software related to services. Although high-end cars now contain hundreds of millions of lines of code, development takes place in silos. To meet consumer needs at this high level of complexity while avoiding ‘walled’ proprietary solutions from a few monopoly players, a secure, open car-to-cloud and cloud-to-car platform is needed. APPSTACLE, has created such a platform, connecting cars and transportation vehicles to the cloud using hybrid communication technologies for V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication. Eclipse facilities have been used to build an open ecosystem in which security, privacy and identity requirements can be met, allowing the platform to be used in a wide range of vehicles.

C³PO Impact story

Smart Cities · 23 November 2020

Before the age of social networks, city planners would first hire architects and contractors for new urban developments and improvements and, once the plans had been finalised and a 3D scale model produced, they would consult their voters. Today, the ITEA C³PO project has found ways for city planners and designers to consult citizens throughout the urban transformation process and thereby give citizens a better say in urban developments. The aim of the project was to set up a common digital platform that connects all the tools for collaborative urban development.

M2MGrids Impact story

Smart Cities · 30 September 2020

The M2MGrids project aimed at creating enablers for a dynamic cyber-physical information ecosystem that would interoperate in real time with the business processes of companies with real-life objects, people and things. M2MGrids focussed on major disruptions in targeted energy and mobility domains. The disruption in the energy domain was related to operating models and the high cost of peak hours in energy grids. The inability of multiple stakeholder systems to exchange information in dynamic situations (such as in a traffic accident) was leading to disruptions in the mobility domain.

ACCELERATE Impact story

Smart Communities · 19 December 2019

Innovation is about much more than creating technology; it must ‘go to market’. Many companies need new ways to rapidly validate the match between the market and their innovative ICT-intensive technology. The ITEA project ACCELERATE took up the challenge of enabling European technology companies to adopt acceleration know-how by focusing on two goals: the transfer of knowledge on a massive scale and the introduction of a new type of product development, the so-called validated learning process that systematically searches for the technology-market match by validating the mechanics of a business model.

CAP impact story

Smart Communities · 03 September 2018

While the arrival of enabling technologies has made a wealth of public and organisational data available for analytic processing, access to the data and to efficient analytic tools is often difficult. Furthermore, combining such sources of massive data can yield much richer applications and greater insights into intelligence reporting. This requires a collaborative platform, which makes it easy for the participants to share data securely and to easily gain access to the latest technology tools. By positioning the target open-source architecture to support Big Data, ecosystems and value chains, the ITEA CAP (Collaborative Analytic Platform) project contributed to the development of new but sustainable business models and laid the foundation for a market value proposition of ‘Big Data as a Service’.

SoRTS impact story

Smart Health · 03 September 2018

While there have been considerable advances in recent years in the oncological and radiotherapy treatment of cancer, a major challenge still faced by image-guided intervention and treatment is the availability of coupled real-time feedback of the imaging and therapy systems during interventions. The goal of the SoRTS project was to develop a System of Real-Time Systems to support healthcare professionals in the transition from invasive, open surgery to minimally invasive, image-guided intervention and treatment (IGIT). The outcome not only significantly lowers healthcare costs through shorter hospital stays and higher throughput, but it also boosts the productivity and effectiveness of cancer treatment and reduces patient risk.

DIAMONDS impact story

Smart Engineering · 03 December 2017

Nowadays open networks are taken for granted yet this continuous interconnection and data-sharing are vulnerable to a growing number of security threats from both internal and external sources. In sectors such as transport with train control systems, healthcare with medical patient care, automotive with car-to-infrastructure communications and mobile telecommunications, there are safety-critical implications. The ITEA project DIAMONDS set out to examine how to secure these safety and security-critical systems. The project, which brought together 22 industrial and scientific players from six countries to develop a new security testing paradigm and methodology, known as model-based security testing, successfully demonstrated and evaluated it in eight industrial settings from four different industrial domains.

AVANTI impact story

Smart Industry · 13 September 2017

European industry's need for flexible production system design, optimised time to market and extremely high product quality provided the background for the ITEA 2 project AVANTI. The goal was to develop a virtual commissioning test methodology based on behaviour simulation of production systems to enable leading European OEMs, component and tool providers to gain a competitive edge. The projects two key innovations were: (1) virtualisation of the testing process for industrial production lines and (2) the combination of different models and tools for simulating production to create and perform tests for virtual commissioning and industrial application.

SEAS impact story

Smart Cities · 12 September 2017

The SEAS project is at the heart of the energy transition. The project set out to enable interworking of energy, ICT and automation systems at consumption sites, introducing dynamic and intricate ICT-based solutions to control, monitor and estimate energy consumption. It also explored business models and solutions to enable energy market participants to incorporate micro-grid environments and active customers. The SEAS revolution: more cost-effective, more environmentally friendly and more customer focused energy streams through efficient interaction between providers and prosumers … everywhere.
