On 16 May, the European Delegation to the State of Israel and the Israel-Europe R&I Directorate (ISRED) will organise the Horizon Europe Launch Event that will take place in a hybrid format combining both live TV studio and virtual participation.
The event will start with the welcome remark by Dimiter Tzanchev, Ambassador of the EU Delegation to Israel and by Yael Ravia-Zadok, Deputy Director General, Head of Economic Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel. The official opening and special remarks will be delivered by Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, and Orit Farkash-Hacohen, Israeli Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology.
The different sessions will try to address from different angles the key question of how to mobilise European and Israeli Research and Innovation excellence and build on success stories to fully tap into Horizon Europe’s novel opportunities. Moreover, the event will contribute to setting common priorities for future cooperation and preparing the ground for stronger synergies between Israeli and European innovation ecosystems.
The hybrid Horizon Europe launch event will bring together approximately 200 – 250 participants. Among them, representatives from Israeli and European institutions, EIT, EU agencies as well as from Member states, and regional organisations.
