    Technological development and scientific cooperation between Poland and Israel topped the agenda of Deputy PM’s Jarosław Gowin talks with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu during international conference “Thinking Out of the Box” on innovations.

    The conference, which is part of celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the recreation of the State of Israel, was devoted to scientific innovations, as well as the role of public policies in discovering innovations that are important for humankind. Ministers of Science from all over the world participated in the event.

    Scientific and economic cooperation are interconnected 

    Ahead of the conference Minister of Science and Higher Education Jarosław Gowin spoke with Prime Minister of Israel: – Israeli economy is based on modern technologies and now Israelis are promoting the concept of Israel as a startup nation. We can learn a great deal from our Israeli friends in this regard – said Jarosław Gowin in Jerusalem. – We only talked about economic cooperation; Israel’s PM did not broach the topic of the amendment to the IPN (Institute of National Remembrance) Act. It is clear that for Mr. Netanyahu Poland is an interesting partner. We also spoke about scientific cooperation, because these two areas – science and economy – are inseparable in Israel.

    On the sidelines of the conference Minister Gowin held a number of informal meetings with representatives of Israeli academia. They were centered on fostering cooperation between science and business, as well as ways of developing an advantageous environment for startups.

    Ministers Gowin and Dardziński also met with Professors Yaffa Zilbershats, member of the Council for Higher Education of Israel, and Nili Cohen, President of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
