JIIN Japan-Israel Business Forum 2021

Called the “start-up nation” due to the high numbers of start-ups produced each year, Israel attracts global attention to acquire its cutting-edge technology. Under an initiative of the Japanese and Israeli governments, in 2017 a platform called the Japan Israel Innovation Network (JIIN) was launched to promote open innovation through cross-national business cooperation.

This is the 3rd business forum held as part of the JIIN platform. This forum will take up the topics of digital health, smart cities and green tech, introducing possibilities for innovation to emerge from cooperation among businesses through examples of attempted solutions to these kinds of societal challenges. We encourage everyone to actively participate.
