An organization that awards funding for joint U.S.–Israel research projects is coming to Atlanta this month in search of potential grantees.
Eitan Yudilevich, executive director of the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation, or BIRD, will visit the Metro Atlanta Chamber Feb. 25 to share more about the program, which doles out 20 grants of up to $1 million each year.
Projects are sought in a variety of industries such as communications, life sciences, electronics, electro-optics, software, homeland security, renewable and alternative energy and other high-tech sectors. Projects don’t have to be already in motion: Companies can propose joint projects to be funded by BIRD, which takes no equity and provides free services for companies.
RSVP for the event or set up a one-on-one meeting here.
