Israeli Innovation meets Sustainable Development, on the ground.
The purpose of the NITSAN program at Tel Aviv University is to help Israeli technologies and innovations in agriculture, water, energy, education and other fields to realize their potential to advance the sustainable development goals.
Nitsan acts as a bridge between the Israeli experience and innovation system and the ground realities of developing countries.
NITSAN researchers work with local partners to test and adapt Israeli solutions in real field conditions, and develop business models that can overcome socio-economic barriers to their diffusion.
