Continuing a successful cooperation, representatives of the Embassy of Israel in Croatia – the consul, deputy chief of mission Irit Shneor and the economic attaché Maja Vučinić– visited the Agency for Science and Higher Education in February.

With the Agency Director, prof. dr. sc. Jasmina Havranek, they discussed the possibilities for a joint organisation of workshops and lectures primarily targeting the academia and the business sector which would introduce them to successful examples of technology transfers from academia to businesses in Israel. Sharing the Israeli experience first-hand, providing advice as well as networking and cooperation opportunities, could serve as a good basis for developing a technology transfer system in Croatia.

With this meeting, the Agency continued a successful cooperation with the Embassy of Israel, launched in 2013 with the organisation of an academic seminar titled “Excellence in education: a motor for research and innovations” which featured a number of prominent lectures, including professor Dan Schechtman of the Israel Institute of Technology, the 2011 Nobel laureate.
