Since the Collaboration was organized in February 2011, a number of individual research and business relationships are already underway.  A series of educational events throughout the state announced this initiative and encouraged companies, researchers, and individuals to become involved.  A significant South Carolina delegation was recruited for a week-long mission to Israel in November 2011 with focus on the six targeted clusters.  A professional public relations campaign in Israel is raising awareness of South Carolina before, during, and after the missionBusiness and academic exchange matchmaker events built around the clusters bring Israeli companies and researchers to South Carolina to meet and pursue mutually beneficial relationships.

The Collaboration is inclusive, and provides opportunities for meaningful involvement.  We encourage you to join us in this very promising initiative!
