Neurotechnology has been in the headlines recently with the announcement by President Obama of his intention to include $100 million in the US budget for brain research. This news follows the announcement last year by President Peres of Israel’s Neurotechnology initiative and funding of the first Breakthrough Research And Innovation in Neurotechnology (B.R.A.I.N.) Prize, an international R&D award granted in Israel to an individual, group or organization for a recent, practical breakthrough in the field of brain technology.
Seizing on this research priority of our two nations, AICC has organized the first US-Israel Neurotechnology Business Exchange to be held in Charleston, South Carolina next month. MUSC is our host sponsor for the May 6-7 matchmaker event that is expected to attract up to a dozen innovative Israeli companies and potential US partners. This innovative project is organized by our Medical Committee and the South Carolina-Israel Collaboration with the support of the BIRD Foundation, Israel Brain Technologies, SEMDA, Israel Economic Mission, SCBio, Consulate, SCRA, The InterTech Group, and other partners.
Please spread the word and help us make this event a milestone in US-Israel economic and research cooperation!
