As a result of Israel’s continuous need to overcome a scarcity of natural resources, particularly water, and benefiting from close cooperation between government, scientists, consultants, and farmers, Israel has emerged as a significant global innovator of cutting edge cleantech technologies and a worldwide model for the efficient use of water and energy.

The Israel Trade Commission (ITC) and the Australia Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC) would like to invite you to the upcoming breakfast featuring Professor Raphael Semiat.from Israel. The event will be a catered breakfast which will allow you the unique chance to hear from a leader in the water technology and desalination field

Professor Raphael Semiat
