Mission for Growth to Israel (22-23 October 2013): Your gateway to one of the world’s most innovative & competitive economies!
Israel is one of the most competitive economies in the world. The country's main strength is its world-class capacity for innovation, which rests on highly innovative businesses that benefit from the presence of some of the world's best research institutions geared toward the needs of the business sector.
This Mission of Vice-President Antonio Tajani will target numerous industry sectors; however, innovative and environmental technologies will be crucial topics on the agenda since the Mission will be organised in conjunction with the Water Technology & Environment Control Exhibition and Conference in Tel Aviv 22-24 October 2013 (www.watec-israel.com).
The Mission has the objectives to help European small and medium sized companies to operate in Israel and to promote EU industry in targeted sectors by participating in matchmaking events with local entrepreneurs.
The main industrial focus will be on the following sectors:
• Environmental technologies: water management, water treatment, soil management, renewable energy, including solar panels, etc.;
• Key Enabling Technologies, machinery and machine tools, ICT;
• Raw Materials;
• Space Technologies;
• Homeland Security;
• Processed Agricultural Products (PAPs);
• Fashion & High-end industry;
• Automotive Industry;
• Venture Capital.
In previous missions, Vice-President Tajani was accompanied by large business delegations (from 40 - 140 representatives of companies and industrial associations). If you are interested in participating in this Mission for Growth, please register on the Official Mission for Growth registration website or contact your local Enterprise Europe Network partner.
Please sign up your client companies by Friday, 20 September 2013. Companies participating in the mission will have access to the WATEC fair free of charge.
