The first stage for a project consortium consists of responding to a Call for "Project Outlines" (PO). The PO must give a short overview of a project, mainly describing the project goals, innovation, targeted business impact and consortium. For the full list of criteria, please visit the selection criteria web page.
The PO is used for the pre-selection of proposals, preliminary information and budget discussions between the ITEA organisation and the respective Public Authorities and for general information exchange within the ITEA organisation. It enables an initial selection among the different submitted ideas, while keeping the workload of consortia to a minimum.
Submitting a PO consists of three parts:
The ITEA Office provides the PO-FPP Annex template (including guidelines), a Community website intro document and the LoI template. All these documents can be downloaded from the Call documents page.
POs are evaluated by the ITEA Steering Group, ITEA Board Support Group and ITEA Public Authorities based on the selection criteria. Projects invited to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP) will receive a list of recommendations and improvements in order to help the preparations for a good FPP.
