On September 27, 2017, Dr. Henri Rothschild, President of CIIRDF, gave a presentation as an invited witness before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance.  He delivered an address that focused on how Canada could learn from Israel’s success in cultivating one of the world’s most robust economies founded on innovation and concluded with a recommendation that Innovation Canada enter into a strategic partnership with the Israel Innovation Authority.

Dr. Rothschild shared key insight, lessons learned and recommendations that speak to Israel’s unique approach to innovation. His perspective builds on more than two decades of Canada-Israel R&D collaboration facilitated by CIIRDF, one of the most effective bilateral partnership models of its kind in the world.
