ESIL will receive funding from the Israeli government to set up a lab with unique technological infrastructure and support ongoing operation and proof of feasibility for projects accepted by the lab. The strengths of the Israeli Ecosystem are very well known for diversity of innovative technologies & business models. Israel is often called "the Startup Nation" and there is a high entrepreneurial mindset in Israel.

Through this lab we will strengthen our position as a technology company in the Israeli innovation ecosystem and tap into many commercially relevant technologies.
