Following the labelling by the EUREKA High Level Group of Research ministries and national innovation agencies in June 2012, ITEA 3 was officially launched on January 1st, 2014. ITEA 3 is the third instalment of the EUREKA Cluster programme ITEA which supports innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects in the area of Software-intensive Systems & Services. EUREKA ‘Clusters’ are long-term, strategically significant industrial initiatives built around European multinationals in a given technological sector. EUREKA Clusters finance and support the coordination of transnational research projects using national and private funds. They represent an opportunity for the best of European SMEs and Universities to collaborate with the continent's leading companies.
