U.S.-ISRAEL INDUSTRIAL R&D COLLABORATION
The Israel Innovation Authority (formerly the OCS) Americas Operations was established in 2013 in order to initiate and develop partnerships with U.S. counterparts at the state and federal level, as well as with stakeholders in the private sector. Our activity aims to compliment the offering of the BIRD Foundation . We provide partner matching services as well as access to joint funding mechanisms dedicated to the development of business-driven partnerships of Israeli and U.S.-based companies through joint innovation projects. These programs reduce the risks taken in international R&D ventures, while creating new business opportunities.

Calls for Proposals
