Canada-Israel Industrial R&D Program Call for Proposal

Updated September 11, 2017

The Canada-Israel Industrial R&D Foundation (CIIRDF) has launched a new Call for Proposals (CFP) for bilateral R&D projects.  Leveraging support from the Governments of Canada and Israel, this CFP aims to stimulate R&D collaboration between firms in both countries with a focus on the commercialization of new technologies.

CIIRDF will select and award Canada-Israel R&D teams with financial contributions up to 50 percent of the eligible project costs (a maximum of $800,000 per project, whichever is less).

This Call invites private sector companies from Canada and Israel to propose joint research, R&D and technology development projects for the creation of innovative products or processes with a non-defence application. The maximum duration of a CIIRDF project is 36 months.

· Canadian firms have the opportunity to leverage academic expertise on their R&D projects and engage students jointly with NSERC.
· Public sector organizations, such as universities and research institutions, are eligible to participate in R&D projects as subcontractors or consultants (not applicants).

Proposals from all sectors will be considered, but special consideration will be given to projects in the following areas:
• Information and Communication Technologies (including cyber, fintech)
• Life Sciences
• Aerospace
• Clean tech and sustainable tech (including water, renewables), plus limited energy (oil and gas)
• Agriculture and agrifood (including agri-tech)

For information on CIIRDF sector priorities, application guidelines, process, templates and proposal evaluation, please visit the website here. Summary proposals are due by October 6th, with full applications to follow.

Interested Dalhousie faculty are asked to contact the International Research Facilitator in Dalhousie Research Services (This email address is being protected from spambots.
