Our Work

INNOVATION VILLAGES PROGRAM >

Israel has a unique potential to advance the global sustainable development agenda in ways that vastly exceed its size. The purpose of the NITSAN Innovation Villages Program - a first of its kind in Israeli Academia - is to enable Israeli technology and its innovation system in agriculture, water, energy and other fields to diffuse and realize their potential to assist sustainable development in low-income settings. 
NITSAN acts as a bridge between Israeli expertise and its innovation ecosystem - in both the private and public sector - and the ground realities of developing countries in order to test and adapt Israeli solutions in the field, and to develop policies and business models that can overcome socio-economic barriers to the diffusion of these solutions.
