It Takes Two to Tango? Spatial and Social Implications of Joint Civil-Military Development

The study examined the impact of the IDF bases' relocation to the Negev on strengthening the urban regions in the Be'er Sheva metropolitan area. It was hypothesized that the relocation of military installations would become a major mechanism for strengthening the towns located in the Be'er Sheva metropolitan area, strengthening the Negev's urban sector and thus increasing social integration. The study examined this hypothesis, both qualitatively and quantitatively, based on a broad spectrum of collected data.

Indices for Science, Technology and Innovation in Israel and international comparison

Indices for Science, Technology and Innovation in Israel and international comparison

At the beginning of the 21st century, the Samuel Neaman Institute identified the need to establish an infrastructure for advancing a systematic and ongoing process of forming national policy on Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI). The objective of this program is to improve the understanding of the STI system of Israel and to answer the question of how processes associated with the development of science, technology, and innovation contribute to increased knowledge, increased productivity, improved economic performance, professional employment, sustainable development, and social welfare. Understanding of the process is based on the collection, analysis, and correct presentation of the various relevant indices and on the analysis of trends as they change over time and in comparison with other countries.
R&D Outputs in Israel: Quality Characteristics of Distinct Inventions

R&D Outputs in Israel: Quality Characteristics of Distinct Inventions

The report is the third in a series of studies conducted by the Samuel Neaman Institute on Israeli patents. The first part of the study provides updated data on the scope and characteristics of inventive activity by Israeli applicants and inventors in various patent offices (ILPO, EPO, and the USPTO) and in the PCT track. The report presents trends in patent applications and granted patents according to sectoral attributions, examines Israel's international cooperation in the field of inventive activity, and analyzes trends in cross-border patent ownership. The characteristics of foreign applicants at the Israeli Patent Office (ILPO) are also analyzed.
