The National Council for Civilian Space R&D in Israel

The National Council for Civilian Space R&D in Israel
Researchers
Dr. Gilead Fortuna

Dr. Gilead Fortuna’s appointment as a member of the National Council for Civilian Space R&D Committee in 2012 allowed the Samuel Neaman Institute to become more active and contribute significantly to the National Council for R&D. Furthermore, in 2012 there were three meetings of the committee, during which Dr. Fortuna was appointed to head the sub-committee that deals with R&D strategy in space.

The role of the committee is to advise on formulating a long-term R&D policy in the field of commercial space that will allow the strategic objectives set out to be effectively achieved. The basis for the civilian space vision is the document submitted to the President in 2010, and the measures of success in achieving the objectives have to be derived from this document.

The role of the subcommittee is to build strategic thinking that will allow a long-term plan to be presented from which the tool for presenting indices of success will be derived, and which will also serve as a baseline for updating over the coming years.

In 2012, guidelines were presented for studying the opportunities of and barriers to industrial areas to guide the continued work of the Committee in 2013. In addition, separate indices of international visibility were presented, as well as of the lateral impact on research, education, and pride in the sector and the attainment of the goals of business sales.
