Industrial R&D Cooperation with North and Latin America


Canada, The United States, and Latin America offer many opportunities for industrial R&D cooperation for Israeli companies. MATIMOP generates and implements cooperative and bilateral industrial R&D programs with leading R&D entities, which  provide the necessary bridge to enter international markets, get access to funding and receive assistance in partner matching. 
In addition, the  MNC-Startup partnership initiative in Israel is facilitated through  the Global Enterprise Collaboration Program.
Through R&D alliances, both Israeli and international companies not only benefit from the unique strengths and skills of their partner company, but also make the most of market opportunities unique to the others' region.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             For more information, please visit the country-specific web pages and contact our Americas department:
