The goal of this overview, which was prepared by the S. Neaman Institute, is to examine the national policies and cultural aspects that support and lead Israeli innovation.
Material for this document were gathered from various reports, documents, and articles written on the subject, so as to present a comprehensive and general picture of the Israeli innovation system.
The first part of the document includes a review of the Israeli innovation policy. It covers topics such as the setting of objectives in innovation, policy instruments targeting innovation-based competitiveness, and policy implementation and evaluation.
The second part addresses several of Israel's cultural aspects that encourage and support innovation and entrepreneurship. Emphasis has been placed on several components that are unique to Israel: the cultural fabric of the country's population, military service in a technological and progressive army, immigration to Israel, and the availability of resources to fund innovation programs.
