Weizmann Institute Teams with Pfizer

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

The Weizmann Institute in Rehovot and its commercial arm, the Yeda Research and Development company has announced a multi-year deal with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals’ Global  Research division, to explore areas of research that may not be as often addressed in the United States.

The agreement, made public on Monday (June 6), involves collaboration at the newly-established National Drug Discovery Institute (DDI) – located at the Weizmann Institute – in the Nancy and Steven Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine (G-INCPM).

The center will work on projects of mutual interest, in particular those that might address unmet medical needs.

“This is an exciting partnership for Pfizer,” said Mikael Dolsten, President of Pfizer Global Research.

“We have interacted with the Weizmann Institute for many years and have confidence in their scientific vision and expertise. We anticipate that this arrangement could potentially result in meaningful discoveries in the coming years,” he added.

For projects that appear to have further potential, Pfizer and Yeda said they would discuss research and development agreements.

Israel, EU Agree on R&D Project, Despite Settlement Guidelines

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Israel and the European Union have agreed on a compromise under which Israel will join the Horizon 2020 research and development project despite new EU guidelines on Jewish settlements.

Following months of negotiations, the agreement was reported Tuesday night in the Israeli media after an impasse was reached on Monday night.

The project is expected to provide about $1.9 billion over several years to Israeli researchers and universities. Israel has taken part in the EU program since 1996.

In July, the European Commission announced new guidelines making Israeli entities and activities in Judea and Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights ineligible for EU grants and prizes beginning on Jan. 1.

The agreement allowing Israel to sign came after telephone negotiations between Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and EU Foreign Minister Catherine Ashton, an unnamed Israeli official told Haaretz.
