The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) and the Israel Innovation Authority have issued the first call for proposals as part of the organizations’ collaborative effort to propel innovation through private sector partnerships, inviting Indiana and Israeli businesses to submit joint research projects focused on developing high-tech solutions in agbiosciences and cybersecurity. Indiana companies interested in this opportunity are invited to submit expressions of interest and high-level project proposals by Thursday, Jan. 31. Following the Jan. 31 deadline, finalist companies will be matched, if not already paired, and asked to submit full, bilateral proposals by May 7. The IEDC and Israel Innovation Authority intend to provide conditional match funding for selected projects to support and accelerate the proposed R&D and the commercialization of new solutions. The full request for proposals, along with the interest submission form, is available on the IEDC website
