We are delighted that Vinnova hosted ITEA’s first masterclass dedicated to digital transformation in Stockholm on 19 October 2016.
The ITEA masterclasses are a new tool developed by ITEA to make a further step in the direction of market impact. We have already many ITEA projects delivering fast exploitation. We are proud of that and it generates a lot of value for our industrial partners (large companies, SMEs and start-ups) in the global market. Our community is learning a lot from these projects on hot topics like digital transformation, energy transition, software and system engineering, security, automotive standards, etc. We are willing to share these understandings outside of our community to strengthen the impact and for the interest of our Public Authorities who are investing in our projects. Thus we intend to develop these masterclasses on hot topics for which we gather the know-how acquired during our most successful projects and, with the support of our Public Authority, we will invite some companies mainly from outside of the ITEA community to take advantage of these understandings and to accelerate their own transition.
The first masterclass has been set up on digital transformation which impacts all businesses nowadays. We gathered the know-how of three successful ITEA projects: ACCELERATE, SCALARE and InValue.Read more

On 21-22 June in the Berlin Bosch premises and with the support of the Charité hospital, ITEA organised its second international customers & end-user workshop on Smart Health.
The aim of these workshops is to strengthen even more the ITEA community in his recognised business impact focus. We observed that our projects, which involve the end users from the beginning, are delivering more regularly fast exploitation. We are convinced, that it is because we try to respond to actual demands of the users, that our innovations are spreading quicker on the market. Thus our industrial board decided to introduce this annual event focussed on a dedicated theme. Last year it was on Smart City, this year on Smart Health; topics of prime importance for society, for innovation potential and for our ITEA community.

The R&D programme dilemma is to define a detailed roadmap to select the best proposals on this roadmap. This detailed roadmap has to be defined when everybody is more and more conscious that we are in front of a “wall of innovations”. The key question is not so much to have an idea of innovation rather than to decide on where to invest.
Thus when an R&D programme is too directive with the support of so-called experts, many companies may feel that the programme and its experts are pointing in the right direction. They try to respond as best as possible along these directions. The result is that the companies innovate in the direction proposed by the R&D programme and the R&D programme becomes the actual customer.Read more
