Canada-Israel Technology Innovation Partnership — Call for proposals

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are being accepted now. Full proposals and funding applications will be accepted immediately following an approved EOI.

The call for Canada‑Israel Technology Innovation partnerships evolved from a joint prime ministerial initiative to hold the Canada‑Israel Technology Innovation Summits in 2010 and 2011. These events had as an objective to strengthen technology innovation partnerships through sustainable cooperation mechanisms in order to generate mutual economic advantage.

Responsibility for coordinating this joint activity was given to two parties: in Israel, to the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) at the Israel Ministry of Industry Trade and Labor, through MATIMOP – the Israeli Industry Center for R&D, and, in Canada, to the National Research Council (NRC).

The call for proposals between MATIMOP and NRC is launched within this framework, aiming to facilitate and support collaborative projects in designated areas of cooperation. Joint projects in this framework will be funded through existing OCS and NRC mechanisms and may be leveraged by other investment.

Submission of proposals and approvals of collaborative projects will be in line with the EUREKA procedures, noting Israel's status as a EUREKA member and Canada's status as an associate member.
