Germany and Israel face similar challenges and opportunities when it comes to globalization and digitalization. Which synergies could result from an innovation exchange? What would successful cooperation look like? As our study German and Israeli Innovation – The Best of Two Worlds shows: Networking is crucial for shaping German-Israeli partnerships. Innovative platforms, moreover, facilitate the interactions that can make those partnerships happen.

The study is based on 62 interviews, in particular with representatives of German Mittelstand companies and multinational organizations, as well as ecosystem experts from both countries. The study includes a stand-alone annex which offers a comprehensive overview of private- and public-sector resources, including contact information for interested businesses in Germany and start-ups in Israel.
