Technion highlighted at Israel Innovation Center

A new interactive showcase of Israeli technology is now open at the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation in Jaffa, Israel, and the Technion’s place as a driver of the country’s tech-based economy is evident throughout.

Included among the showcase’s 18 life-sized video avatars of Israeli entrepreneurs who have made their mark Israel are Technion alumnus Dov Moran, whose company M-Systems created the flash thumb drive, Professor Hossam Haick, inventor of “Na-nose” technology that can sniff out cancer and other diseases, and Technion alumna and software guru Kira Radinsky, who recently stepped down from her position as chief scientist of eBay Israel to take a position as the CTO of Diagnostic Robotics.

There is also a room in which, each year, 45 Israeli startups are highlighted. For the launch, companies highlighted include Technion alumni-led companies Electreon, StoreDot, Vayyar, SpacePharma, and BreezoMeter.
