The project is being coordinated by MASHAV – Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation.
Two Israeli experts delivered a first course on innovation and entrepreneurship in Beijing recently during a visit to China by Matti Cohen, director of training at MASHAV.
The course taught different theoretic models for promoting innovation on the national and regional level, setting up innovation labs and incubators in Israel and worldwide, developing cooperation and innovation between private countries, and models for the development of innovation processes in start-up companies.
At the end of the course, its Chinese participants presented project they developed by implementing the models. Each graduate received the book "Startup Nation", which has been translated into Chinese and tells the story of Israel as an economic miracle and high-tech power.
According to Cohen, the new and important project will help strengthen relations between the two countries, which are marking 20 years of diplomatic ties.
