Israel, Mexico, Sign Research & Development Pact

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Israel and Mexico have signed a deal to cooperate on industrial research and development, Israel’s Ministry of Economy announced Monday.

The two nations are set to fund joint projects aimed at advancing industrial development between both.

Leading fields for cooperation with Mexico will focus primarily on water management, desert agriculture, pharmacology and medical devices, electronics and communication.

“Mexico is one of the world’s largest manufacturers in a variety of fields, comprising an essential part of the country’s economy,” said Rona Kotler Ben Aroya, trade attache to Mexico from the Israeli Ministry of Economy.

“The signing of the industrial R&D agreement between Israel and Mexico will help Israeli companies integrate products and advanced technologies with local manufacturers and realize the potential of [the North American] market.”

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.
