Innovation Talk - Israel


Daniela Oliel, Project Manager, Business Metropole Ruhr

Israel is an international leader in crisis management of the COVID 19 epidemic. One reason for this is the efficient use of hi-tech and artificial intelligence. This is an area in which we can still learn a lot from our Israeli partners. In our new digital "Innovation Talk - Israel", we will introduce you to Israeli start-ups, together with our Partners, that offer solutions to today's pressing issues.

- How do we motivate citizens to shop locally?
- How do we solve digital educational challenges?
- How can drones and robotics in areas such as logistics, mobility control and disinfection increase security in our cities?

Welcome to our 1st "Innovation Talk - Israel"!
