Space Florida and the Israel Innovation Authority have issued a new joint call for project proposals valued at $2 million in research and development funding.

This is the ninth year that Space Florida and the Israel Innovation Authority are conducting the competition. In October 2013, Florida and Israel initiated an annually recurring $2 million joint program to support research, development, and commercialization of aerospace and related technology projects that benefit both Israel and the State of Florida.

The projects approved to date encompass a wide range of promising research, including the development of next-generation 3D printed circuit systems, unmanned aerial systems (UAS), innovative radiation shielding technology, next-generation capacitors to power spacecraft, and identifying specific changes in human muscle and immune cells to model disease in reduced gravity environments.

Israeli and Florida-based for-profit companies are asked to present cooperative proposals, which will be vetted for feasibility.

Funding will be awarded to those companies demonstrating promising partnerships and near-term potential for commercialization and economic benefit to both states.
