ACR study trip to Israel

Once a year the Austrian Cooperative Research organises a study trip in order to broaden one’s horizon, to discover new possibilities for innovation and to strengthen the internationl research network. The this year’s destination was Israel. Israel is the second most innovative nation in the world, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2016-2017, which ranks countries’ competitiveness based on 12 categories, including innovation, technological readiness, business sophistication and higher education.

From Jerusalem to Tel Aviv the programme was full of interesting meetings and presentations: a dinner talk with the director general of the green energy association of Israel, the Hebrew University, the Porter School of Environmental Studies, Tel-Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and of course the Technion in Haifa!
