“Future in flux?”: OECD GFTech event

SNPI played a significant role at the OECD Global Forum on Technology’s event, which brought together high-level leadership, technology, and policy experts, collectively exploring the challenges shaping our technological future.


Our Chairman, Prof. Eugene Kandel, delivered a keynote address on shaping innovation ecosystems. Drawing insights from Israel’s experience as a global leader in innovation, he emphasized the need for a groundbreaking vision and a long-term smart policy, the pivotal role of public-private partnerships, and strategies to navigate both local and global challenges.


In these difficult times, the importance of international collaboration and cross-sector dialogue cannot be overstated. It’s noteworthy that the event was originally planned to be hosted in Israel, jointly led by the OECD, SNPI, and our partners the Israel Innovation Authority and the Israel National Digital Agency. However, in light of the brutal attack of October 7, it took place virtually.

We express gratitude for the opportunity to share our insights and experiences with the global community. By fostering collaboration and leveraging collective expertise, we can forge a brighter future for all.

Embracing Innovation: The Israeli Model Inspires Zambia’s Journey

Our CEO Uri Gabai and Senior Policy Fellow Danny Biran had the honor of presenting the Israeli innovation model and its ecosystem development over the last decades, to the President of Zambia Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, accompanied by Minister of Science and Technology Mr. Felix Mutati, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Stanley Kakubo, together with Ambassador of Israel to the Republic of Zambia Ms. Ofra Farhi and a delegation of prominent Zambian officials and private sector leaders.


The meeting was highly insightful, and as reported by Lusaka Times, the President expressed that “Zambia has drawn a lot of lessons from Israel through a presentation by Start-up Nation Policy Institute on the need to incorporate technology and allow the private sector to participate in the economic development of the country”.


Excited to see Zambia’s interest in strengthening its innovation ecosystem, we at SNPI believe in the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Israeli experience can inspire Zambia’s ambitious journey toward innovation-driven growth.
