Czech Republic-Israel Industrial R&D Cooperation Framework


An Agreement on bilateral industrial research and development cooperation was signed by the Israeli Ministry of Economy and CzechInvest, the Investment and Business Development Agency.
Preferred Technologies & Sectors

The program supports joint commercially-focused joint industrial R&D projects between Israeli and Czech companies in all technological fields.


Expected project results will have to contribute to the development of commercial products, applications and or services. The proposals should comply with the following guidelines:

  • The partners should include at least one Israeli and one Czech commercial company (though participation of research institutes/universities is welcome as additional participants or subcontractors according to each country’s funding regulations).
  • Companies from other countries may also participate, but they will not be funded either by OCS or by Czechinvest.
  • The project should have an obvious advantage and added value resulting from the cooperation between the participants from the two countries (e.g. increased knowledge base, commercial leads, access to R&D infrastructure etc.)
  • The project should demonstrate the contribution of the participants from both countries

Program Administration

  • The program maintains offices in both Czech Republic and Israel; Czech and Israeli entities should contact their respective offices at any time.
  • A new c all for proposals is published every year. It is open for 3 to 4 months for submission of application forms. link to the most recent call
