ADAMA: A GATEWAY TO INNOVATION
The Israeli Innovation Center
Through exhibits, tours and workshops, the Center highlights innovation in Israel and beyond, with agriculture as a key area of focus, alongside cyber technology, clean energy, pharmaceuticals and smart transportation. Remarkably, there are more than 5,000 start-ups working in these fields in Israel, 400 of which in agriculture-related areas alone.
ADAMA’s exhibit at the Center introduces the challenges faced by farmers today through an interactive installation, aimed to educate visitors about the complex process necessary to bring food to our table.
The Israeli Innovation Summit, held in October 2018, marked the opening of the Israeli Innovation Center. The event was hosted by Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and attended by China’s Vice President Wang, as well as hundreds of global business leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators, including former Google Chairman, Eric Schmidt and Alibaba co-founder, Jack Ma.
“We were invited to be a signature founding partner of the Peres Center for Peace & Innovation, reinforcing our company’s standing as a leader in Israeli life science innovation. For a country the size of Israel, we see an astounding number of start-ups and levels of innovative thinking as we attempt to find new solutions to global challenges and improve lives.” Chen Lichtenstein, ADAMA President and CEO
