European ITEA program calls for project outlines
ITEA (Information Technology for European Advancement) is the premier co-operative software R&D program in Europe. The fifth ITEA call for Project Outlines will be launched on 15 January 2002 and will close on 12 April 2002. The ITEA calls for projects are organised in a two-step procedure. In the first pre-labeling step, short Project Outlines (POs) should be submitted. If the pre-labeling step is successful, Full Project Proposals (FPPs) are required. These are then evaluated and, if approved, receive the final ITEA Label.
The next call covers five domains (home, enterprise, mobile, intermediation services & infrastructures, and complex system engineering) and promote progress in twelve categories of enabling technologies (content capture, creation & authoring, content representation, data & content management, network transport & protocols, network & distributed management, resource management, security, human system interaction, system engineering, software engineering, and engineering process support).
A Project Outline preparation session will be held on 15 and 16 January 2002. More detailed information about this session and the call itself will be available from 15 December 2001 on the website: http://www.itea-office.org/main_projectcalls.htm.
