IMG_6401The EU Delegation to the State of Israel held its fifth annual EU-Israel Social Innovation Seminar on 10th September 2015 as part of the annual the DLD Innovation Festival (Israel’s largest international Hi-tech gathering), at which IVN’s Michal Simler was invited to moderate. The seminar took place at the “Tahana” (new station compound) in Tel Aviv.

Over 50 European incubator managers and staff, start- up companies, policy makers and academics attended the fifth annual EU-Israeli Innovation Seminar. They were joined by over 30 of their Israeli counterparts as well as dozens of representatives from EU Embassies.

The seminar, co-organized with IVN and ISERD, brought together leading Israeli and European policymakers, business people and academics to identify problems, find solutions, exchange experiences and best practices.

IVN’s Michal Simler was invited to moderate one of the four parallel sessions: Social Financing – Funds, Micro-Finance, Crowd Funding, Bonds & Complementary Currency.

The day was filled with scintillating discussions and established the basis for future cooperation.
