France in ITEA

France, a very strong supporter of ITEA 1 and ITEA 2, has revived its interest in ITEA 4. Remarkably, 13 out of the 16 ITEA 1 and 2 Calls feature award-winning projects with French participation, showcasing the invaluable contributions of French partners within the ITEA programme. Through their involvement in ITEA projects, several prominent industry partners have secured multimillion-euro contracts or potentially averted multimillion-euro losses. Notably, Smart Engineering emerges as the primary focus within ITEA projects with French involvement, followed by Smart Communities and Safety and Security.

On this webpage, you will find an overview of activities and publications of France in ITEA. It provides valuable insights into the potential benefits of participating in an ITEA project and whether ITEA could be a fit for your organisation. You can also find information regarding the funding opportunities and the national funding contact details.

Funding information for France

For French participants, there are 2 types of funding, depending on the size and characteristics of the project.

In both cases: the project, and the French participant's technical and financial capacity to carry it through must be assessed by Bpifrance. What is recommended to French firms is to contact our team as early as possible before submission to check eligibility to funding.

Impact stories with French participation

Impact is one of the main ambitions in ITEA. Impact on business, on the market, on society. 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. With the (financial) support of national Public Authorities, many ITEA projects have achieved incredible results, which are gathered in ITEA Impact stories.

For Dassault-Aviation, MODRIO has enabled many very useful breakthroughs for the design of next-generation aircraft, in particular the results regarding the modelling of requirements and system architecture, associated with fast multi-core simulations, multi-mode modelling of system failures and safety analysis. Output from ITEA projects like MODRIO has brought Dassault-Aviation capabilities that allow different working methods to handle complex systems, thereby contributing to the global (digital) transformation of the company.
