By Shoshanna Solomon

Affordable surgical devices and water, energy and cellular phone projects are the Israel-India initiatives that are to receive funding from a joint technology innovation fund set up by the two nations to boost collaboration between researchers and firms.

The governing board of the Israel-India Industrial R&D and Technological Innovation Fund (I4F) announced the four first recipients for grants from the fund, which was launched earlier this year as a result of the July 2017 visit of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Israel.
