Why come to Israel at this time
In its brief 65 years of existence as a State, Israel has dedicated efforts to science and technology research, which translates to the notorious contributions made by the country to science in fields such as Genetics, Computer Science, Electronics, Optics and other high-tech industries.
Considering that Israel is a very small country, it ranks third worldwide in expenditure for research and development, the eighth place in technological preparation (according to the expenditure of its companies in I+D, the creativity of its scientific community, the number of personal computers and the Internet penetration rate), the eleventh place in innovations, the 16th rank in exports of high-tech and the seventeenth in technological achievements according to the “Nation Master” list (related to countries by economic standards).
Israel is the country with the highest number of scientific publications per head: 109 per 10,000 people and is one of the countries with more registered patents.
The Israeli agriculture is well-known worldwide and many of its inventions are at the forefront of global innovation. Based on a deserted land with little natural resources and water, Israel had to overcome these restrictions by creating advanced agricultural technologies, including drip irrigation, water recycling and reuse systems, optimization of crops, new varieties of highly productive seeds, improvements in the cultivation systems, dairy high performance, etc.
In the mid-1990’s, Israeli research institutes developed the Cherry tomato, which enjoys international success and sold to the length and breadth of the world. The Galia melons were developed in Israel in the Vulcani Institute, and became leaders in Europe.
The Israeli market for spices is between 60 and 70 per cent of the spice in Europe market. In flowers, Israel sold special variants of Narcissus and “Boton de Oro” (Melampodium divaricatum) throughout Europe.
Israel developed species of edible grapes that produce abundant harvest. Israel developed techniques and special varieties of fruit that grow out of their station and which are sold all over the world, such as: strawberries, persimmons and raspberries. Recent discoveries have been made in biofuels.
