EURAXESS STARTUP HUB - TOUR@ISRAEL
Welcome to Israel!
Israel is recognized globally as a start-up nation. Israel's unique society and culture, strong economy, government support, and "global-first" market approach are just a few of the factors that make Israel's innovation ecosystem one of the most successful in the world. This well-established ecosystem includes about 7,000 active start-ups! During the last year, about 20 billion euros have been raised by those start-ups and is second in the world to the US. Most of the largest international hi-tech enterprises have branches and established R&D divisions in Israel. Israeli entrepreneurs have successfully demonstrated how to persevere in the face of adversity.
The participants taking part in this innovative EU pilot will be recruited from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cyprus, Estonia, Israel, Luxembourg, Montenegro, and Serbia.
Would you like to explore this exciting innovative ecosystem? Your visit will include a visit to Haifa, home of the Technion, a science and technology research university, among the world’s top ten, an introduction to leading accelerators, an encounter with entrepreneurial and tech transfer case studies, a tour of a local innovation center, as well as a visit to BINA applicative science unit (which nurtures and supports early-stage basic research projects likely to produce intellectual property with practical applications) in Rehovot just south of Tel Aviv, at the Weizmann Institute of Science, one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary basic research institutions in the natural and exact sciences.
You can apply to tour Israel, Estonia, Luxembourg, or all three!
