ITEA 2 stands for ‘Information Technology for European Advancement. The organization stimulates and supports innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive research and development (R&D) projects which will contribute research excellence to Europe’s competitive software-intensive systems and services sector.
The Achievement Award 2012 will go to high-level technical contributions based on true European collaboration that provide significant results and promote the program and its goals.
Each year, the ITEA Achievement award highlights very successful projects with outstanding contributions to the ITEA program. Major factors include innovation, exploitation and dissemination. As ITEA aims to make Europe’s industry more competitive, effective industrial exploitation of project results is crucial.
Silver Award winner MODELISAR has closed the loop between the Modelica simulation environment and AutoSar, the automotive standard. Dynamic modelling of different software systems can be used together for soft¬ware, model and hardware-in-the-loop simulation and for embedded software – a sort of plug-and-play approach for components in the simulation framework.
