Innovation, Industry & Science Trade Mission to Israel

Share |

The Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce together with the Israel Trade Commission are delighted to advise that Carolyn Hewson AO and Carol Schwartz AM will co-lead a Trade Mission to Israel from 25–31 March 2012.

Ms Hewson was recently ranked by the Australian Financial Review as Australia’s most powerful director based on the $209 billion combined market capitalisations of the ASX-listed companies on which she serves as a board member.

“I am delighted to co lead this important delegation to Israel in March 2012 and invite interested parties to join us. We will be investigating how Israel fosters innovation and commercialisation and how the science and educational sectors interact with industry to invest in skill sets for future growth industries.” said Ms Hewson.

The trade mission, specifically designed for senior leaders from business, government, policy and academia, will expose delegates to key Israeli influencers and enable a sharing of innovative business ideas and opportunities. It will also focus on social enterprise and philanthropy. Israel is a world leader on many of these issues and the opportunity to collaborate will be mutually rewarding.

The weeklong trip to Israel will include visits to leading universities and their technology transfer companies, representatives from Israel’s Higher Education Board and Israeli Captains of Industry. Delegates will hear how Israeli industry and Government interacts with the education sector as well as briefings with Israel’s Chief Scientist and heads of Industry Programs.

In addition to the group program, individual meetings can be tailored for individual delegates to achieve their personal objectives.

Carolyn Hewson AO, Director of Westpac, Stockland, BT Investment Management and BHP Billiton.

Carol Schwartz AM, Chairman, Our Community and Qualitas Property Partners, Director, Stockland, Yarra Capital Partners and Bank of Melbourne.
