The ITEA label is endorsed by all Eureka Member Countries and financial support can be provided according to national funding procedures.

In order to prepare a successful proposal, you need to be aware that there may be significant differences in funding procedures. You must therefore make sure that your project proposal fits within national public authorities' priorities and funding rules before you submit it to ITEA.

National funding applications

National applications for funding should be submitted after ITEA labelling (or earlier depedent on national procedures). Since the deadline for such submissions varies from country to country, each project partner (or each consortium’s national contact person) should get in touch with the relevant public authority’s contact person well in advance to know the deadline, the information to be gathered and/or the forms to be filled in.

Take into account the following:

  • The ITEA label is a prerequisite to obtain funding from national public authorities, but an ITEA project label does not automatically ensure the funding of the project;
  • Each project partner must apply to their national public authority for funding;
  • Each public authority will decide on a per partner basis and according to the relevant national funding rules whether to fund a project or not;
  • Funding contracts are directly dealt with between each project partner and the relevant funding public authority;
  • Each project partner is responsible for providing the relevant public authority with all information concerning their project according to the relevant funding rules; and
  • In addition to the FPP, the ITEA Office will provide the relevant public authorities with any available information necessary for making funding decisions.

National funding contacts

ITEA Office provides contact details for various national funding contacts which support and coordinate the funding of ITEA projects (the ITEA Authorities Committee - ITAC). You can find the contact details of the funding contact by clicking on your country in the list below.

For countries not represented in ITAC, you should contact the appropriate Eureka National Project Coordinator (select the country of your choice via the button 'Change country').
