The program explores how governments can better promote science, technology, and innovation policies in order to promote the production, diffusion and use of scientific and technical knowledge in order to tackle societal issues to serve public needs.
Together with the CREATORs IDEAtion Lab, the Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) offers young professionals an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program on the theme of “Fostering Innovation – European-Israeli Perspectives”.
The Fellows program will provide young professionals with an opportunity to work at the heart of Tel Aviv’s lively high-tech scene, participate in meetups with leading figures in the Israeli Tech-industry and learn firsthand about the country’s tech ecosystem.
As part of the program, the fellows will be expected to compose a policy paper pertaining to one of the aforementioned topics while focusing on best practices from around the world. The fellows will be able to draw on the pool of partners of the IPPI and of CREATORS and familiarize themselves with relevant actors in the country.
