An Innovative Model
With equal investment from the Canadian and Israeli governments, as well as the industry collaborators from both countries, CIIRDF offers partnership services to companies in Canada and Israel. With teams on the ground in each country, CIIRDF provides financial support for R&D projects up to the point of commercial readiness, assuming reasonable revenue potential and profits commensurate with the risk.
CIIRDF does not take an equity position or claim any Intellectual Property (IP) rights in jointly developed technologies. The CIIRDF model is founded on an arms’ length structure, a factor that enhances efficient and effective program delivery, leverage and productivity.
