The BIRD Foundation is celebrating 40 years of commitment to U.S.- Israel collaboration in innovation

BIRD is celebrating 40 years of U.S.-Israel collaboration and innovation on June 14 in Washington DC at the National Museum of American History.
The reception will be held at the museum’s special wing dedicated to innovation.

In addition to welcoming remarks to be given by both U.S. and Israeli dignitaries, a panel comprised of five successful BIRD grantees will discuss  how their joint collaborations contributed to the success of their companies.

In honor of the 40th anniversary, a video was also produced and debuted at the reception which highlighted these successful projects and described their technology and final products. Click here to watch the videos. The celebration will continue in December as we recognize this successful milestone once again in Israel

In honor of the 40th anniversary, BIRD will present its own exhibit, an Interactive Project Database, where guests could browse through hundreds of BIRD projects viewed by year, industry sector and U.S. state. BIRD’s Interactive Project Database is now available online for all to explore.
