The article discusses the role of research institutions in Israel in developing and commercializing research and technology. Ramot at Tel Aviv University, Technion Research and Development Foundation and BG Negev Technologies and Applications at Ben Gurion University are all doing technology transfer deals, though their number is still small compared to that of Hebrew University and the Weizmann Institute. While life sciences still dominate technology transfer deals, there is growing interest in computer sciences, imaging, nanotechnology, water and alternative energy. The opportunities increase for the country's research institutions. Besides selling intellectual Property, they now have the means to take stakes in some of the hundreds of startups riding on their research.
