New South Wales (NSW) - Israel R&D Cooperation Program
The NSW-Israel R&D Cooperation Program aims to facilitate, support and encourage research & development (R&D) partnerships between NSW and Israel based entities. Based on an agreement signed in April 2016, the program provides one-off financial grants to NSW entities and conditional grants to Israeli companies embarking on joint R&D projects focused on developing new and innovative products,
or services for the global market.
In addition to access
to funding schemes, Israeli and Australian companies can contact the Innovation Authority for assistance
in identifying potential partners for R&D projects. This service is offered
on an on-going basis. Companies interested in this service are invited to
fill out a Partner Search Form.
