About the event

This in-person workshop will introduce you to ITEA Cluster: the EUREKA RD&I Cluster on “Software Innovation”, enabling a large international community of large industries, SMEs, start-ups, academia and customer organisations to collaborate in funded projects that turn innovative ideas into new businesses, jobs, economic growth and benefits for society.

It is industry-driven and covers a wide range of business opportunities facilitated by digitisation like smart mobility, healthcare, smart cities and energy, manufacturing, engineering and safety and security.

Information on the ITEA 2023 Call is available through the ITEA Cluster call page.


2023 marks the 25th anniversary for ITEA. Over this period, the ITEA Community has grown to over 2000 unique project partners from large industries, SMEs, universities and research institutes in 35 countries worldwide, creating a strong impact and changing businesses and lives every day through “Software Innovation”.

EUREKA is an intergovernmental network launched in 1985, and the UK has been a member of the network since then. It aims to support market-oriented R&D and innovation projects by industry, research centres and universities across all technological sectors. It is a global network of government ministries and innovation agencies of over 45 countries collaborating on research and innovation projects. EUREKA Clusters are thematic public-private partnerships which convene projects between SMEs, large industry and academia across EUREKA countries.
