Grants to Israel companies partnering with New York for-profits for technological research and development activities. Funding is intended to support eligible projects that test and optimize innovative devices and services in areas such as urban farming, environmental monitoring, and emergency medicine in select municipalities.

The Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) and the State of New York, through selected New York State Cities, jointly open the NY Smart City Innovation Partnership program call for company proposals. Interested Israeli companies are invited to submit applications to pilot, test, adapt, and optimize impactful Smart City technologies, services, and devices in the areas specified below. Projects will be conducted in municipal testbeds at the following selected New York Municipalities:

  •  Glens Falls: Vertical Urban Farming 
  •  Jamestown: Advanced Water Meter Monitoring
  •  New York City: Automated Mobility Counting; Real-Time Flood Monitoring
  •  Saratoga Springs: Connected Wi-Fi Street Lights
  •  Schenectady - Smart Remote Courts; Emergency Medicine Triage
  •  Syracuse - Monitoring Vacant Structures; Algae Bloom Monitoring & Treatment
  •  Village of Southampton: Environmental Monitoring of Nitrogen Pollution

The goals of the collaboration are to stimulate transnational partnerships, accelerate the availability of Smart City innovation to the public, introduce Israeli technology to the US market, and advance the development of discoveries for the benefit of all people.

Successful applicant companies will receive funding directly from the Israel Innovation Authority, in addition to access to the partner Municipal Testbeds.

The pilot projects must contribute significantly to the solution readiness for deployment and commercialization. Proposals must clearly elaborate how this is going to be achieved utilizing the resources and merits of the project partners. The proposed project will be examined based on its innovation and excellence level, impact, the synergy between the partners, the capacity to execute, and the challenge it is trying to solve.

Project applications should have evidence to support the proposed pilot, such as a working prototype or POC. The high-risk in testing the technology with the partner city may necessitate further development for improvement, customization, and fixing of elements that appear just before, during, or after the pilot. (Changes in scope that may result will not increase the authorized budget.) 

This program is operated under the IIA’s Track for Bilateral Pilot (see Pre-Application Information below.)
