India and Israel are both start-up nations with young populations, brimming with talent, energy and innovation. While continuing to strengthen ongoing cooperation in traditional sectors such as agriculture, water and defence, the challenge in the years ahead is to create mechanisms and platforms that would incubate cooperation in frontier areas of technology such as EnvironmentTech, Lifesciences, Robotics and AI. Both countries are global leaders in the area of digitalisation, whether of society, economy or governance.
Bangalore is at the heart of India’s advanced IT and services economy. The Israel Centre at IIM, Bangalore seeks to collaborate with universities, corporates, think tanks and public entities to study and develop initiatives and projects that would contribute to building the next generation India – Israel partnership that truly reflects the enormous capabilities of both countries and their common aspiration for a strong multi-faceted relationship.
