Fraunhofer steps up cooperation with Israel

Germany's Fraunhofer Society of independent research centres has agreed a deal to build a joint communications platform with an Israeli technology park.

The deal with businessman Stef Wertheimer will involve Fraunhofer working with the technology park Zur Lavon, an industrial area owned by Wertheimer and located north of Haifa. This will help Fraunhofer scientists to forge links with Israeli companies, universities and research organisations, the society said in a statement on 14 November.

Fraunhofer already has ties with academia and businesses in Israel, and this agreement will “take this exchange to the next level,” said Reimund Neugebauer, Fraunhofer’s president. The collaboration will involve joint research projects and training and staff exchanges, with a focus on industries in the north of Israel.
