Roundtable: Trends in Data Analytics in Israel’s Water Sector
Tuesday, November 10, 2020

9:00 am 
Central Standard Time (Chicago, GMT-06:00)
5:00 pm  Israel Standard Time (Tel Aviv, GMT+02:00)

Israel’s water scarcity challenges are well known. Responding to these challenges, Israel achieved the highest water reuse rate (around 90%) and now gets about half of its fresh water from expensive desalination. Furthermore, Israel has been very ‘smart’ about managing and conserving water with the innovative application of smart water technology and data analytics.

What does that innovation look like? What role does data analytics play in decisions about water conservation? And how does Israel’s leading role in smart water translate into opportunities for Minnesota companies?

Join us Tuesday, November 10, 2020 for Minnesota Water Technology Roundtable: Trends in Data Analytics in Israel’s Water Sector for a virtual gathering and some great insights on these questions.

We will also get an introduction to the BIRD Foundation from Andrea Yonah, Director of Business Development for the U.S. East Coast & Midwest for the BIRD Foundation.

Is Israel on your radar for export or a possible strategic partnership?
The Minnesota Trade Office is making plans to bring Minnesota companies to WATEC Israel 2021, Israel’s leading water sector trade show and conference. Eligible small and medium-sized firms could receive a cost-free trade show booth (value about $3500) or matching STEP grant funds to help with travel costs. Four Minnesota firms came with us to WATEC 2019 and had an excellent experience.

Steve Riedel, Regional Trade Manager at the Minnesota Trade Office, will give a short briefing on booth and grant opportunities for WATEC 2021 and on export opportunities in Israel’s water sector.
