Our main interest is in technologies, that correlate with ICL's core activities, that make use of ICL's primary source materials and represent ingenious approaches to issues faced by ICL companies. See Our Focus.
The projects selected will benefit from ICL’s Innovation Incubator commercial and business support. Each project will be adopted by one of ICL's subsidiaries, and will enjoy full financial and , development support over the long-term, both in the laboratory and in the field. See Resources.
