“25 Years of ITEA Webinar – Türkiye Session” will be held on 12 May 2023!

A free-of-charge information event will be held online, on 12 May 2023 by TÜBİTAK and ITEA Cluster, a Eureka Cluster focused on software innovation.

This year, ITEA celebrates its 25th year, the Eureka RD&I programme fostering software innovation and digital transition through funded collaborative projects. For 20 years, Türkiye has been one of the strongest and stable supporting countries with over 100 ITEA projects. Many impactful outcomes have been created by Turkish project partners and many ITEA projects with Turkish participation have received the ITEA Award of Excellence recognising their high level of innovation, exploitation and impact on business and society.

To continue this success and the creation of impact for Turkish organisations, TÜBİTAK and ITEA are very pleased to invite you to our ‘25 years of ITEA Webinar- Türkiye Session”. During this session, you will be introduced to ITEA and its funding opportunities through TÜBİTAK, you will learn more from experienced ITEA project participants from Türkiye and you will have the opportunity to pitch a project idea and find project partners.
