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.

Digital Innovation is more than innovation

With digital ITEA we are working towards Digital innovation, the next step of innovation.

We are confronted by the continuous and quicker changes of our world. The digital transition may puzzle us. It can put our companies out of the market if we don’t take care or at least drastically reduce our margins if we become just providers under the lead of some digital giants who alienate us from the end-users.

Nevertheless, we have already a real box of pearls that we can exploit more. In Europe we have built an incredible environment of cooperative R&D projects which deliver some unique results. But they need a stronger market push. Some billions of euros are invested by the European Commission, by the national governments for the EUREKA Clusters and by our companies in these projects.

Very often, and in particular with ITEA, such projects deliver unique innovative results that have some direct impact on the market. But it is not enough! We want to be even more ambitious in ITEA.
