Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) and Innovate UK
Grants to Israel and United Kingdom technology companies to collaborate on research and development projects in any area of industry. Funding is intended for joint projects that focus on developing creative and original products and applications in all market and technology fields. Applicants are expected to develop ready-to-market solutions or projects that have strong market potential.
- The UK and Israeli partners must express their will to cooperate to the development of a new product, industrial process, or service. The product, process or service must be innovative and there must be a technological risk involved.
- The project should have an obvious advantage and added value resulting from the technological cooperation between the participants from the countries (e.g. increased knowledge base, commercial leads, access to R&D infrastructure etc.).
Funding support will be given to each eligible partner by its own National Authority. These organizations will also provide access to public funding for the joint projects. Funding conditions and eligibility criteria may vary from country to country. As a summary, the main funding criteria are explained below:
Funding from Innovate UK will not exceed 70% if you are a micro or small business, up to 60% if you are a medium-sized business and up to 50% if you are a large business of the eligible and approved costs of the R&D.
