IEXAMPLE OF NTERNATIONAL R&D RESEARCH IN ISRAEL

INTEL TO INVEST $11 BILLION IN ISRAEL
BreakingNews,  Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 29, 2019

“Behold, the coastlands await me, With ships of Tarshish in the lead, To bring your sons from afar, And their silver and gold as well— For the name of Hashem your God, For the Holy One of Yisrael, who has glorified you.” Isaiah 60:9 (The Israel Bible™)

Israel’s Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon announced Monday night that Intel, an American multinational corporation and technology company, will invest $10.9 billion in the company’s Israeli operations, making this one of the largest infusions of foreign money into the Israeli economy. It is estimated that when this plan is realized, the company’s investment in its Israeli operations since it was founded in 1974 will reach $50 billion.

In conjunction with the announcement of their future investment in Israel, Intel released a statement saying that its exports from Israel in 2018 totaled $3.9 billion, an increase of $300 million from 2017, in addition to local procurement of materials and services – primarily in the periphery – worth $1.7 billion.

To facilitate this further investment, the Israeli government is expected to give Intelt a grant of $190 million. The company already pays a reduced 5% tax rate, which it would not seek to change under the arrangement, according to the report.

Intel currently employs 11,700 workers in its Israeli operations. An additional 1,100 work at its Jerusalem-based Mobileye subsidiary which it acquired in 2017 for $15.3 billion. The purchase of Mobileye was the largest sale of an Israeli company to date.

Last month, the Knesset’s Finance Committee announced it would give Intel a $190 million grant in return for investing an additional $5 billion in its existing Kiryat Gat fabrication plant, and hiring an expected 250 new employees and purchasing domestic products worth $570 million.

Intel facilities in Ra’anana are currently working on high-speed WiFi connectivity, GPS, and 5G mobile communications with WiGig technology. There is also an artificial intelligence (AI) center in Haifa developing an AI chip for servers in conjunction with Facebook. Intel also has  Research and Development centers in Jerusalem and Petach Tikva.

According to Globes, negotiations are still in an early stage and the final figures could be lower. In December, announced plans to expand current operations in three locations: Oregon, Ireland, Israel but it is still unclear if this will happen, and if so, in which locations.

Intel is in the process of transitioning from being a producer of silicon computer chips to a data-centric company, with activities ranging from the manufacturing of chips to developing safety features in vehicles, wireless phone connections, drones, and cloud-based technologies.


ISRAELI TECH PREDICTIONS FOR 2019

The year 2020 once seemed like a futuristic time where there would be flying cars and robot butlers, but as we actually near 2020, we realize we were not too far off. While we do not have flying cars just yet, Israel is working on creating a self-driving car through Mobileye technology. As for our robot butlers, we have things like Siri, Alexa, and Google that are at our every beck and call. Israeli technology has been at the forefront of moving towards the future and here are just a few things we can expect in 2019.


AMAZON FINALLY ARRIVES IN ISRAEL

Amazon, known to be one of the world’s most popular e-commerce websites is preparing to open in Israel with a local Internet address in the first quarter of 2019. The recent arrival of other large European online retailers such as Next and ASOS, were instant hits and had already begun to transform the Israeli online shopping experience. The excitement is palpable as consumers rush to order online and enjoy the fast- efficient delivery and excellent customer service aspects as part of the experience. Israelis can’t wait to have Amazon as a real choice, with their incredible selection of products and more importantly, without the insanely high shipping charges. The entire effortless experience, from the purchasing process to the arrival of your smiling Amazon box is what excites future Israeli customers. Amazon’s entry will allow Israelis to say goodbye to the local postal system frustrations and welcome inexpensive goodies from around the world.

ISRAEL GOING TO THE MOON!

Just a short seven years ago, Israel entered a Google technology contest to land a small probe on the moon. While no one actually made it to the moon within the time of the competition, Israel became motivated to continue reaching for the stars, and Space IL, Israel’s non-profit space organization, a spacecraft is being prepped for launch in February. Only three other countries have ever landed on the moon, and the fact Israel will be joining this elite club has already raised the spirits of Israelis, as it will be putting our tiny country into the modern-day space journey. Even before Israel decided to go to space, Israeli-British Judaica designer, Laura Cowan, has been space obsessed, sending her sleek Apollo inspired mezuzah into space with NASA, being one of the few Jewish items that has seen the Great Beyond.

CANNABIS EXPORT INDUSTRY PLANS FOR 2019

Excitement is building within the world of Cannabis exports as Israeli legislation paves the way for exporting medical cannabis in 2019. With the almost year-round perfect climate for growing and cultivating marijuana combined with a high level of expertise in Israel, this is an industry that is causing a stir. While there are fears that an export industry can increase the amount of illegal substance abuse on Israeli streets, the amount of excitement and buzz of financial predictions has put those fears away. Joining the Cannabis export industry has the potential to raise Israel over $1 billion in sales.

IOT KICKS OFF IN ISRAEL

IOT, or the Internet of Things, has been one of the many projects in the Start-Up Nation. Aside from working on the first self-driving car, Israeli companies have been working on multiple IOT projects that have been known around the world. MUV Interactive based in Herzliya has created a device that is meant for play, education, and even the corporate world, that allows any space to become interactive. Voice assistants from Google and Amazons are starting to find their place in the Israeli home and small devices here, and there are often installed in the home. Control your heat, lights, even the temperature of your next shower from your phone. IOT is the future, and the future is now.

STRAW-FREE, TEL-AVIV?

Joining in the global eco-friendly trend, cafés in the modern city of Tel Aviv have finally begun the vital shift to reduce the amount we are using and producing plastic. Israel has been known to lead a plastic life, and even the smallest of changes have made the biggest impact. Since supermarkets started charging for plastic bags, there has been an 80% drop in plastic bag use. Moving forward, many Tel Aviv bars and restaurants have taken a straw-free pledge, no longer handing out plastic straws with every drink, which tend to litter our beautiful sea. The people of the bustling coastal city have welcomed the critical shift to reduce plastic use, and 2019 looks set to be the best year yet for reducing and recycling plastic waste.

EUROVISION

Not so much technology related, but Tel Aviv is set to host Eurovision 2019 and Israel is excited beyond words! Netta Barzilai’s winning single, “Toy” took the international music world by storm and has finally brought the great European singing competition back to Israel for the first time in decades. Netta’s win has inspired many young musicians to get out there and follow their creative dreams and has the Israeli sense of pride shining brightly once again. The 2019 Eurovision contest will be hosted in one of the world’s biggest party capitals, which guarantees an unforgettable time. The international competition is also set to drive an increase in tourism as international acts with their supporters and fans will arrive to take part in the week-long competition.

CANCER TECHNOLOGY

Incredible advancements were made in 2018, including the Israeli discovery and testing of a new molecule that literally kills brain cancer. One of the current projects Israel’s high-tech medical researchers are working on that is expected to have high levels of success, is said to help reduce tumor sizes in cancer patients, thus extending life expectancy. For medical research in Israel, 2019 is a year to be very excited about, as even more in helping improve the lives of others is to come. The combination of medical expertise and tech knowledge has been paving the way for game-changing treatments and looks set to continue and an even faster pace.

ISRAELI ADVANCES IN IVF TREATMENTS

It seems as though Israel has been a leader in fertility advancements and 2019 will see even further development for in vitro fertilization. This includes the latest treatments, which have shown to speed up egg maturation and ovulation. The impact can be seen through the entire provision of IVF services throughout the world and will also lead to other added on potential uses of this technology which has yet to be thoroughly investigated. 2019 is a promising time to be living, as the odds of becoming a parent, despite potential fertility issues, begins to seem less and less bleak. These advancements, alongside many others, are sure to become part of recommended treatments in the years to come.

JERUSALEUM- ISRAEL’S CRYPTOCURRENCY TO HIT THE MARKET

An Israeli titled cryptocurrency called Jerusaleum is long overdue as so much speculation and hype continue to both excite and cause some levels of concern within the Israeli financial world.  Jerusaleum is a currency that focuses on decentralization, bringing the power back to the people and “open the sky.” Their two tokens are JLM and JLMD, are expected to be listed in the second or third quarter of 2019, but for now, one can join Jerusaleum’s network as a co-founder. The requirements for joining are rather simple, as one just needs a MetaMask wallet and an Ethereum wallet address. Take part in the future monetary revolution and join Israel’s own Jerusaleum!

While these are just a few predictions for what is to come in the last year of the decade, 2019 will hopefully bring so many more technological advancements and surprises to help better the world. Technology has proven to be the way of the future, and there is no stopping it, only joining it, so being on Israel’s side has its advantages. We are always looking forwards as to what big scale projects this tiny Start-Up Nation has to offer — going to the moon, improvements in medical technology, joining the cyber currency revolution, who knows what else is to come from Israel!


SPOTLIGHT: ISRAEL'S NATIONAL FOOD TECH CENTER TO WORK ON FUTURE OF FOOD
Xinhuanet 2018-09-03, Editor: Liangyu, Nick Kolyohin


Israel's national food tech center, to be opened by 2019, will gather all the best minds to work on the future of food, aiming at "helping the obese western world and the starving third world."

The center, located in the northernmost Upper Galilee region on the border with Lebanon, will bring together industry, research, and academia.

"This is the first time we are establishing in Israel a special region only for food tech industry," Michal Fink, deputy director general for Strategy, Policy, and Planning at Israeli Ministry of Economy, told Xinhua.

"Our mission is to make it a flourishing technology center to deliver the world a better, healthier and affordable food technology that will both help the obese western world and the starving third world," said Fink.

Fink pointed out that the Israeli food technology startups and companies are growing fast by 13 percent annually. "In 2017, there were 224 food tech companies in Israel, compared with only 56 a decade ago."

As a "startup nation," Israel wants to make all the regions of the country part of the high-tech industry, while most of the industry is concentrated around Tel Aviv city.

Erel Margalit, founder and chairman of Jerusalem Venture Capital, established the Israel Initiative 2020, which is aimed at bringing the high-tech centers to remote parts of Israel.

After a successful establishment of cybersecurity tech center at the southern city of Be'er Sheva and media tech center at Jerusalem, Margalit is focusing on the north of Israel for his next mission.

The food technology startups and companies which will choose to operate in the region around a northern city of Kiryat Shmona will be generously granted.

"We are bringing the most significant incentives ever that any Israeli company in this category got, subsidizing 40 percent of the salaries, giving the companies free land to build their facilities and much more," Margalit told Xinhua in an interview.

Margalit, also a former Israeli politician, worked hard over years to make the north of Israel its food tech capital.

"The food industry is undergoing a significant change, and the food tech will be one of the biggest high-tech categories over the next three years. Israel is leading in food biotechnology," said Margalit.

He is seeking for big international companies to take part in the Israeli food tech, "the large companies in Europe, Asia, and the United States need primary research and significant breakthroughs to reduce sugar, starch, and gluten."

The new food tech center is envisioned to be a leading world research and development site. If the multinational's R&D centers join the northern Israeli food tech center, it can have a significant positive influence.

Ofir Benjamin from the Food Science Department of Tel Hai College, located in northern Israel, is leading the mission of establishing the National Food Research and Innovation Institute by 2020.

"The institute will be a central part of the northern food tech hub, and startups will be invited to use our equipment for their cutting-edge technologies," Benjamin told Xinhua.

The institute will initiate its research projects, and the first ones will be "to make the protein affordable and accessible to the whole world population," said Benjamin.

"We already succeeded to make a pudding dessert out of bees high-quality protein with an extraordinary nutritional value of minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium," Benjamin told Xinhua.

"There are places around the world where people don't have sufficient protein intake. Our goal is to make the protein affordable and accessible to everyone instead of costly meat, eggs, and milk," Benjamin added.

Moreover, instead of producing food by rearing and slaughtering animals like sheep, cows, chickens, pigs, fish, turkeys and more, the Israeli companies is struggling to find a more humane and cost-effective way.

The future food may come from high-tech plant products with less use of water, lands and energy for each kilo of food, or from small creatures like insects.

"Insects' growing process has a less adverse influence on the environment compared with poultry or livestock, and they have outstanding nutritional value with high protein level," Benjamin said.

"We are working on edible insects from which we make powder or flour, so it becomes raw material for the food industry," said Benjamin.

Although using insects could be perceived by some as a sustainable solution for an industry that doesn't want to harm livestock and fish, not everybody is happy with it.

"This technology has the potential to create massive amounts of suffering, far more than what exists today in the livestock and fish industries," Ronen Bar, the founder of Sentient, said in an interview with Xinhua.

"If insects are sentient, this could be a catastrophe, because the numbers are huge. You can make many steaks from one cow, but could need a thousand insects to make only one bug burger," said Bar.

"Eating plants will always be the environmental choice because you eat the protein directly, as opposed to feeding animals with protein and then eating them," Bar told Xinhua.

The Israeli food tech hub has many different companies in all kind of food sectors, part of them trying to make the food safer, healthier, affordable and others try to make better packages or more technological agriculture process.
