Getting started

Online ITEA PO Days 2020: we look forward to connecting (with) you!

You now have the chance to become part of ITEA's future! Join us at the Online ITEA Project Outline Preparation Days (PO Days) 2020, which will be held from 7-11 September.

Each year, ITEA opens a Call for innovative R&D projects in the domain of software innovation. This is usually in conjunction with a two-day physical brokerage event, the ITEA Project Outline Preparation Days. This year, ITEA 3 Call 7 will open on 7 September 2020, and although we would have loved to come together with the ITEA Community again, the health of our members is our number one priority. The current situation with COVID-19 prevents us from organising a physical event this time.

However, this doesn’t mean we can’t connect. On the contrary! ITEA and its Community have a proven track record of being agile and finding solutions to many challenges, and we won’t stop now.

Online tools to shape your project proposal and consortium

ITEA 3 Call 7 opens on 7 September, but you can already start preparing your project proposal right now!

Since several years, ITEA offers a state-of-the-art online tool set to shape project idea(s) and to help identify potential project partners to build consortia. In the Project idea tool, project ideas can be uploaded and viewed (NDA protected) and via the Partner search tool interesting potential project partners can be invited to join your consortium. If you are interested in joining an idea, you can send the project idea leader a request to join and leave a message at the comment field of that specific idea.

For the Online ITEA PO Days 2020, extra features are created to facilitate the online event and project creation. On the (registration and NDA) restricted Online ITEA PO Days 2020 webpages you will be able to find:

Interested or expert in Cyber Security?

The best innovation projects often start from clearly stated customer or end-user requirements. To create such strong innovation projects that address the key challenges, ITEA organises once a year an international customer and end-user workshop. This year the ITEA international customer and end-user workshop focussed on Cyber Security. A full report on the workshop can be downloaded in the ITEA 3 Call 7 Project idea tool. It can possibly serve as valuable input for your project ideas as the workshop focusses on actual customer needs.

Mix between speed dating and a hackathon

The PO Days event is an opportunity to do what I call a mix between speed dating and a hackathon at the same time, to come up with an idea that we wouldn’t be able to come up with ourselves.

Train departure

It's actually like being on a train station and the PO Days prepare for the departure of the train. There are several wagons in which you can ride. Once the train has started rolling, you can still climb in, but it becomes increasingly difficult.

Spirit of open innovation

The ITEA PO Days are an excellent networking event. There is a real spirit of open innovation and collaboration. Having discussions with peers can lead to interesting results for all concerned. Some proposed project ideas, which at first seemed to be out of scope for us, turned out to be a perfect opportunity to match our needs with the needs of others.

Andy De Mets - Barco

Improvement of project proposals

The PO Days offer the opportunity to strengthen project proposal consortia or to join project proposals of others. Together with these possible partners, the objectives of the project proposals are improved during the different group discussions.

Visioning a future world

If you attend the ITEA PO Days regularly, you see how ideas are evolving to products in some years. And afterwards the ITEA PO Days are not only days to participate in R&D projects, but also days for visioning a future world.
