U.S.-ISRAEL INDUSTRIAL R&D COLLABORATION

Our activity aims to compliment the offering of the BIRD Foundation . We provide partner matching services as well as access to joint funding mechanisms dedicated to the development of business-driven partnerships of Israeli and U.S.-based companies through joint innovation projects.
