Israeli-Dutch Innovation Center

Our Methodology

The Israeli Dutch Innovation Center (IDIC) was established in December 2016 by the Netherlands Embassy in Israel. IDIC is managed by Dr. Racheli Kreisberg, the Innovation Attache of the Netherlands Ministry of Economy and Climate Policy. IDIC has an advisory board that meets once a year to discuss the opportunities and challenges of the Netherlands-Israeli cooperation.

In order to facilitate the bilateral cooperation, the IDIC website provides the following information and tools to our users:
