Why should you apply for this incentive program?
Financial grant:
The incentive program offers a grant used for the R&D process of a new product or the upgrade of an existing product.

Long-term R&D: The incentive program enables long-term R&D operations for the development of future products and innovative technologies that provide the company with a competitive advantage and the ability to penetrate new markets, as well as strengthen overall growth in the Israeli economy.
