New Report Published for KTN Advanced Materials Global Expert Mission to Israel

Posted on 02/04/2019


The Advanced Materials Expert Mission travelled to Israel in February 2018.

Innovate UK’s Global Missions Programme is one of its most important tools to support the UK’s Industrial Strategy’s ambition for the UK to be the international partner of choice for science and innovation. Global collaborations are crucial in meeting the Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges and will be further supported by the launch of a new International Research and Innovation Strategy. The Global Expert Missions, led by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), play an important role in building strategic partnerships, providing deep insight into the opportunities for UK innovation and shaping future programmes.


In advanced materials, many dual-use technologies, originally developed by the defence industry from the 1980s onward, have found their way into other industries and civilian applications. This has been facilitated by the movement of staff, notably scientists and engineers, and has become one of the key drivers of growth in the high technology sector in Israel since the 1990s.
