The EUREKA Cluster ITEA pushes innovation and targets business impact. We observed in many of our projects how it makes the difference when a project integrates some end users in its core team. To target the market, the first step is that research actually responds to user demand. User demand is rarely expressed in terms of a document that clearly outlines the demand but rather it is a deep interaction between users and engineers.
It is exactly what occurred with the ITEA RECONSURVE project where a team of innovators works directly with the Turkish coast guard to develop a sophisticated system vision crossing different real-time sensor data to allow the operator to analyse a complex situation with hundreds of simultaneous tracks.Read more

Do you know any traditional economic domain protected from digital transition? I am afraid none is protected. It means all our European leaders are under this pressure of digital transition. Just as an example, the automotive industry recognises nowadays how important software is to its industry; more than 40% of the added value in a car is in electronics and software. For innovation the share is even more important, with most of the innovation supported by software in a physical product like a car!
ITEA is more than keen to support this digital transition to help our industrials to manage it in a better way.Read more

The ITEA SoRTS project gathers two worldwide leaders, Philips for the imaging system and Elekta for the therapy tools, supported by few complementary partners. SoRTS’ main innovation is the real-time integration of imaging and therapy tools to increase the productivity and efficiency of treatments. It is easy to understand the impact on our citizens’ health and the level of required innovation to ensure this real-time integration. SoRTS has all the characteristics of a very innovative research project with high impact potential.Read more
