The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) launched a new innovation Hub in Tel Aviv to create new opportunities for European and Israeli innovators and entrepreneurs. As Europe’s innovation engine, the EIT is integrating business, education and research organisations in dynamic pan-European partnerships. This hub will strengthen the EIT Community’s activities in Israel and act as a bridge between the European and Israeli innovation ecosystems. It will support the EIT Community in delivering a greener, healthier and more sustainable planet.
Over 200 stakeholders from both the Israeli and European ecosystems took part in the opening event yesterday evening, including Emanuele Giaufret (EU Ambassador to Israel), Nili Shalev (Israel-Europe Research & Innovation Directorate Managing Director), Rolf Nagel (Member of the EIT Governing Board) and innovators from business, higher education and research.
