What we do

Israeli innovation model:

Israel is a young state that gained its independence in 1948, and it is one of the world’s leaders in the field of innovation. The achievements of the middle eastern nation have arisen from its culture imbued with a robust drive for developing innovation, which we conceive as the “Triangle of Innovation”, to represent the alignment of the strengths and interests of government, universities and inventors, and, finally, the private sector. In other words, we always strive always to promote, learn and launch --the three synchronized axes of a new, cost-effective motor of development by which Israel can boast:

Becoming number one in the world in start-ups per capita.

Having the most engineers per capita and standing in second place world-wide in R&D as a percentage of GDP (4.7%)

Moving from USD $100,000 million to USD 410,000 million in GDP over the last 30 years, with per capita GDP rising from USD 15,000 to USD 44,000, almost exclusively on the strength of technological development.

Attaining high marks in indicators of water treatment, with the country currently treating 92% of all water, while exploiting 72% of treated water in agricultural uses.

Becoming a world leader in solar power for heating water, with 83% of all heated water coming from solar heaters.

Becoming the only country in the world with more trees at the beginning of the XXI century than in the previous century.

Attaining 9th place in 2022 Happiness Index versus northern European countries founded hundreds of years ago.


ILAN has developed a model to inspire innovation and drive innovative projects, while strengthening ties between Israel and Latin America.


The Shimon Peres prize, conferred in a high-impact, high-profile ceremony, acknowledges the achievements of innovators and university students.


We integrate teams of innovators in each of the seven domains of analysis for the purpose of identifying the seven most pressing challenges faced by countries.


We propose solutions for each of the challenges, and we use knowledge generated in Israel to potentiate these solutions.


We submit proposals to decision makers, and we publish a journal in order to teach about the solutions, which is disseminated among the mass media, politicians, diplomats and academics. 


The four preceding steps serve to drive innovation aimed at improving countries and the quality of life of their peoples.
