Supporting partner matching and access to funding for Japanese and Israeli companies engaged in collaborative R&D projects

In July 2014, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Israeli Ministry of Economy (MOE) signed a landmark agreement (MOC) to support industrial R&D cooperation between Japan and Israel. The Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) aims at encouraging industrial R&D cooperation and increased business ties between private sector firms from Japan and Israel.

 

Together with a complimentary agreement signed between the ministries’ implementation bodies – the Israel Innovation Authority, and NEDO, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization in Japan – this agreement serves as a basis for the Japan-Israel R&D Cooperation program. Under the program, Israeli and Japanese companies have access to government funding for collaborative R&D projects as well as assistance in locating R&D and business partners.

 

Partner Matching Support:    
The Israel Innovation Authority and NEDO are available to conduct dedicated partner searches for both Israeli and Japanese companies based on their individual needs and requirements
