Expanding the EIT Community's presence in Israel
The EIT Hub in Israel was established in Summer of 2019 as a bridge between the EU and Israeli innovation ecosystems. The EIT Hub in Israel is expected to expand the EIT Community’s presence and volume of activities in the country, in particular in the area of business support.
The EIT Hub in Tel Aviv will support European innovators to attract Israeli customers, partners and investors. It will also showcase innovation made in Europe on the global stage.
The EIT Hub in Israel is already developing two programmes:
- "Connect and experience" is focused on training in the area of start-up development.
- "Disrupt me" brings together EU and Israeli companies in a deep matchmaking process.
An innovation and entrepreneurial hotbed with strong participation in the Horizon 2020 programme, Israel has drawn the interest of EIT Health, EIT Food and EIT Urban Mobility, which are present in the country through their Israeli partners.
The official opening of the office in Tel Aviv will be 9 December 2019.
