About the Tour

The Israel Innovation Study Tour will offer participants first-hand insights into how Israel and its firms have been able to innovate, grow, and compete in global markets. By participating, you will engage in a unique and dynamic forum for examining cross-cutting strategic issues related to Israel’s innovation ecosystem. You will have the opportunity to hear from and network with experts working within the areas of telecommunications, cyber-security, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and renewable energy. You will benefit from learning about groundbreaking developments in innovation and commercialization that are helping to secure Israel’s position as a global high-tech pioneer.

On this study tour, you will spend two days in and around Tel-Aviv, speaking with industry and academic experts, and government officials from a variety of sectors related to high-tech development. You will also spend time in Beersheba learning how Israel is building a world-leading innovation ecosystem—CyberSpark—that combines military, industry, government, and academic expertise. Finally, you will benefit from a guided tour of the Old City and gain an appreciation of the cultural and historical context of the region, and how this has shaped Israel’s successful approach to innovation.
