The Americas

Industrial R&D Cooperation with North and Latin America


The Americas offer abundant opportunities for industrial R&D cooperation to Israeli companies. MATIMOP operates in the Americas regions, implementing bilateral cooperation agreements with global market leaders as well as emerging markets, including: United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. In addition, cooperation with American based corporations is facilitated through the Global Enterprise Cooperation program.

These cooperation agreements and industrial R&D programs provide the necessary bridge to enter international markets, get access to funding and receive assistance in partner matching.

Through R&D alliances, Israeli companies not only benefit from the unique strengths and skills of their partner company, but can also make the most of market opportunities unique to this vast region.
