Opportunities for Funding U.S.-Israel Cooperation in Innovative Homeland Security Technologies


The BIRD Foundation announced its next funding cycle with a call for U.S.-Israel joint project proposals focusing on innovative R&D collaborations between U.S. and Israeli companies. In general, to be considered, a proposal should have significant commercial potential and the project outcome should lead to commercialization. Relevant R&D topics include Life Sciences, Cleantech, Communications, Electronics, Software, Homeland Security, etc.

With the goal of enhancing U.S.-Israel collaborations in Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Israeli Ministry of Public Security (MOPS) have recently shared with the BIRD Foundation a list of high-priority topics in the areas of First Responders, Disaster Management, Cyber Security and Explosive Detections. A joint DHS-MOPS document specifying high-priority topics for research and development collaborations can be downloaded from

The maximum conditional grant per project is up to 50% of the R&D costs associated with the joint project, and no more than $1 million per project.

The application process is web-based and requires prior discussion with the BIRD Foundation. Executive Summaries are due by September 23, 2012. Final full scale proposals are due by October 23, 2012. Decisions will be announced December 18, 2012. Please refer to BIRD's website for submission details -
