Call process

Submitting an ITEA proposal

Once a year, ITEA offers the opportunity to submit research project proposals that fit in the domain of software innovation. For this purpose, a Call is organised each year starting with a brokerage event. In a two-stage procedure, the quality of the project proposal is evaluated and improved, finally leading to a selection of high-quality project proposals that receive an official label. The label provides project partners with the possibility of applying for public funding from their national Public Authorities.

Consortia & project characteristics

Two-stage Call process

  1. Producing a Project Outline (PO):
    This PO gives a short overview of a project, mainly to describe the project goals, innovation, targeted business impact and consortium. Project Outlines which are positively evaluated are invited for the second stage;
  2. Producing a Full Project Proposal (FPP):
    This FPP describes the project plan and how the project will be executed and managed. Approved FPPs will receive the ITEA label.

The Public Authorities are fully involved in the evaluation and labelling of projects. After labelling (or earlier dependent on national procedures), partners can apply for funding through their national Public Authorities. The label is endorsed by all Eureka Member Countries.



ITEA is a non-profit organisation financed by project contributions, for more details, see the ITEA Contribution Rules.
