Success story lines

Do you have an innovative idea in the domain of software innovation? Then join us in our upcoming ITEA Call for projects! ITEA 3 Call 7 will open on 7 September 2020, in conjunction with the Online ITEA Project Outline Preparation Days (PO Days) 2020, which will take place from 7 to 11 September 2020.

Each year, ITEA opens a Call for innovative R&D projects in the domain of software innovation. This is usually in conjunction with a two-day physical brokerage event, the ITEA Project Outline Preparation Days. This year, ITEA 3 Call 7 will open on 7 September 2020, and although we would have loved to come together with the ITEA Community again, the health of our members is our number one priority. The current situation with COVID-19 prevents us from organising a physical event this time.

However, this doesn’t mean we can’t connect. On the contrary! ITEA and its Community have a proven track record of being agile and finding solutions to many challenges, and we won’t stop now.

PO Days 2019 in numbers

To optimise your preparation period, it is recommended that you start shaping your project idea(s) and consortia well before the Call opens. For several years, ITEA has offered a state-of-the-art online toolset to support you in shaping project idea(s) and to help you identify potential project partners in order to build consortia. In the online Project idea tool, (NDA-protected) project ideas can be uploaded and viewed, and you can search for a specific expertise and invite interesting potential project partners to join your consortium via the Partner search tool.

For the Online ITEA PO Days 2020, extra features have been created to facilitate the online event and project creation. On the (registration- and NDA-) restricted Online ITEA PO Days 2020 webpages, you will be able to find:

  • posters and pitches of uploaded project ideas
  • contact details of the initiators of project ideas
  • an overview of the scheduled working group sessions, where ideas will be discussed and further elaborated with potential project partners
  • presentations and instruction videos on:
    • how to benefit from the Online ITEA PO Days 2020
    • project Call overview
    • how to shape your Project Outline
    • how to submit a PO using the ITEA project submission tool
    • financial and legal aspects
    • national priorities and eligibility criteria
  • Links to the webinars that will be organised during the Online ITEA PO Days 2020 and which will support you in constructing a strong proposal

So, don’t delay your preparations: start uploading your project idea(s) now to take full advantage of the tools!

Connect with us and your potential partners during the Online ITEA PO Days 2020

This year, we will organise the Online ITEA PO Preparation Days from 7 to 11 September. As you can expect from ITEA, we will make sure to provide you with a high-quality Online ITEA PO Days event with full support from the ITEA Office team in order to get the most out of your participation. The Online ITEA PO Days 2020 will be a five-day event to enable you to participate in different online sessions of interest.

In short, this online event will enable you to:

  • Present your project idea(s) and/or learn about other project ideas via uploaded posters and recorded pitches
  • Discuss your project ideas in online workgroup sessions and shape them into initial project proposals and consortia
  • Get connected with companies and potential partners from all over Europe and beyond
  • Learn more about the specific funding rules in your country well in advance, as well as how to get in touch with your Public Authorities to discuss your idea(s)

Supporting webinars

During the five-day online event, a set of supporting webinars will be organised to make sure that you get the most out of your participation.
