ITEA is the Eureka R&D&I Cluster programme for software innovation, enabling a large international community to collaborate in funded projects that turn innovative ideas into new businesses, jobs, economic growth and benefits for society. It covers a wide range of business opportunities facilitated by digitisation like smart mobility, healthcare, smart cities and energy, manufacturing, engineering and safety & security. ITEA pushes important technology fields like artificial intelligence, big data, simulation and high-performance computing into concrete business applications.
In a rapidly changing society where societal challenges are omnipresent, digitisation is no longer an option but
should be regarded as the opportunity to create innovative solutions. Digital technology will be applied in all
aspects of society, touching every element of people’s lives. Software innovation is a core component for
mastering this Digital Transition and this is the main focus of ITEA.
Digital Transition is not a one-step process. It has many dimensions whereby development must be continuous. The
more that digitisation is enabled, the more penetrative the transition becomes and the need for more solutions
increases. To achieve this continuous process in a smooth way, a fertile and collaborative environment is needed
in which there are innovative ideas and knowledgeable people that are eager to share, to inspire and be inspired
by each other.
It is ITEA’s mission to enable businesses, with the involvement of their customers, to create innovative
solutions that master the Digital Transition and tackle the major challenges in a way that helps bring to society forward. ITEA encourages its global Community to create impact and value through R&D&I projects
in the area of Software Innovation with the knowledge of industry and the capability of national financing.
