A group of 62 senior executives from China arrived in Israel this week to participate in an innovation workshop at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.
They hope to learn about innovation from Israeli scholars and hi-tech experts.
During the five-day visit, hosted by the Center for Innovation at the Technion’s Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management, the businessmen will attend lectures, tour Israeli companies and meet with Chinese Ambassador Gao Yanping.
Israel Prize laureate Prof. Miriam Erez, head of the Center for Innovation, explained that the workshop was designed for “managers and presidents of mid-sized companies all over China, with a turnover of $10 million.”
“These companies are looking for the added value of technology, and their representatives have come to the workshop to learn the secrets of Israeli innovation,” she said.
The workshop is being held in cooperation with the company Shengjing from Beijing, which engages in business consulting.
