India – Israel Industrial R&D Cooperation
Bilateral programs providing financial support for collaborative industrial R&D ventures between Israeli and Indian companies
MATIMOP, on behalf of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS), collaborates with Indian counterparts at the federal and state level, as well as with stakeholders in the private sector, to facilitate and implement access to funding schemes dedicated to the development of R&D-driven partnerships between Israeli and Indian companies. These programs provide access to the OCS funding schemes in Israel and to similar, parallel funds in India, as well as provide companies with assistance in identifying potential R&D partners.
Through these programs, funding support is provided to joint industrial R&D projects in all technology fields, aimed at the development of products or processes leading to commercialization in the global market.
The India-Israel Initiative for Industrial R&D provides partner matching assistance and access to funding for Israeli companies and companies based anywhere in India. This federal level program is based on the bilateral agreement signed in May 2005 between the Ministry of Science and Technology, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India and the Ministry of Economy (formerly known as the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor) of the State of Israel.
The bilateral framework is jointly implemented by the Global Innovation and Technology Alliance (GITA) in India and MATIMOP, the Israeli Industry Centre for R&D, on behalf of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) in Israel.
