Boston Herald: State program promotes collaboration with Israeli firms
Gov. Deval Patrick and Israeli officials are accepting applications under the Massachusetts-Israel Innovation Partnership — the collaboration between Israel and the Bay State to encourage entrepreneurship in life sciences, clean energy and technology sectors between the two countries.
The state has committed nearly $1 million in funding for Massachusetts companies that are engaged in cooperative industrial research and development projects with an identified Israeli partner. Israel will provide up to $1 million in matching dollars for the corresponding Israeli partner companies. Massachusetts is the first U.S. state to establish such a program with the state of Israel.
