Innovate UK together with UK Science & Innovation Network Israel are organising a Global Business Innovation Programme for women innovators in Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Data with Israel to encourage diversity in innovation and showcase UK women-led businesses.
This fully-funded programme, consisting of a preparation phase in the UK, a 5-day visit to Israel and subsequent follow-up support, will help your business bring your ideas closer to market by tapping into the strong Israeli R&D and investor community.
The Israeli innovation and start-up ecosystem, particularly in Digital, AI, Cyber, is known worldwide for its vibrancy and is supported by high levels of investment in R&D (number 2 in the world). Over 300 multinationals including Facebook and Amazon are actively taking part in the Israeli innovation scene by setting up R&D labs in the country. The UK government has recently signed agreements to strengthen links between the UK and Israel and a £4M joint R&D call is currently open. A number of Innovate UK Global Expert Missions have laid the ground work for further collaboration between the 2 nations, this programme is part of that drive.
