Latin America-Israel Industrial R&D Collaboration        
The International Collaboration Division- Americas Operations in the Israel Innovation Authority, initiates and develops partnerships with Latin American governments as well as with stakeholders in the private sector. We facilitate and implement joint funding mechanisms dedicated to the development of business driven partnerships of Israeli and Latin American-based companies through joint innovation projects that result in the development of new products, processes and services of industrial application leading to commercialization in domestic and global markets.
The Israel Innovation Authority also supports Israeli companies that wish to apply certain adaptations to existing products for the Latin American Markets (localization, regulatory considerations, price reduction, beta site installation, etc.)
