Strengthening the Integration of the Arab Population into the Industry and the Economy – A Strategy for the Galilee Society

SNI in collaboration with the Galilee Society, which is a regional R&D center supported by the Ministry of Science, are working together to strengthen a stable regional center that promotes knowledge industries and unified Jewish-Arab economics in the north.

The program began in late 2015 and is aimed to leverage the capabilities and experience of the Galilee Society as an outstanding regional R&D center and a catalyst to promote high-tech industries in the North and ensure the economic stability of the Center.

The strengthening of the Center will be achieved by increasing the support of the Ministry of Science and the Ministry of Economy. The long-term stabilization of the R&D center and its contribution to the economy of the Galilee will be achieved by the reorganization of the Center.

Phases of the program:

1. Analysis of professional past achievements and the economic leverage obtained, to gain insights and conclusions for the future.

2. Analysis of the current positioning of the Center - the assets, personnel, budgets, potential, and leverage plans.

3. Preparation of a position paper for the Ministry of Science and perhaps also the Ministry of the Economy regarding a long-term plan to make the Center a dominant regional R&D center.

4. Preparation of a reorganization plan for the Center, including the required budgets, to successfully lever the existing assets and those to be built in the future as part of the enhancement program.

5. Search and analysis of regional interfaces with the Academy, including colleges, other R&D centers, industrial areas, greenhouses, factories, and target companies to realize the products to be developed.
