US-Israel Science and Technology Commission
- Service & Advocacy
David Shaw served on commission created by Rabin and Clinton to foster technology business collaboration
The U.S.-Israel Science and Technology Commission (USISTC) was created in 1994 by former President Bill Clinton and the late Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin to encourage technology industries in both countries to engage in joint projects, foster scientific exchange and promote collaborative technological and economic progress. An important aim was to exploit the unique talents of the technology and biotech business sectors. The commission sought to expand employment opportunities and lessen dependence on military markets with the prospect of greater peace in the Middle East and reduced defense spending. In 1995, the U.S.-Israel Science and Technology Foundation (USISTF) was created to administer all programs of the USISTC.
David Shaw served on the executive committee of the USISTC for several years beginning in 1994.
