Once a year, ITEA organises a Call for projects starting with a two-day brokerage event, called the ITEA Project Outline Preparation Days (PO Days).
Participants have the opportunity to submit research project proposals that fit in the domain of "software-intensive systems and services".
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 the official ITEA label. The ITEA label provides project partners with the possibility of applying for public funding from their national authorities.
This event is a stepping stone for many to start preparing a PO, to learn and discuss about new project ideas, meet and partner up with consortium members and find out more about the Call details.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Present their idea in a poster session and during parallel project idea pitch sessions.
- Discuss project ideas in working group sessions.
- Contact other interested parties/potential partners from all over Europe and beyond.
- Receive general information about ITEA and the Call process.
