Established in 2011 as a nonprofit organization, the Israel Innovation Institute (III) is aiming to position Israel as the innovation hub for global challenges and increase the wellbeing of the 21st century citizens, in Israel and all over the world.

By bringing together ecosystem stakeholders, innovative thinkers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, academics, corporations, start-ups, service providers, consumers, and inspiring individuals - we are actively shaping the innovation landscape.

The III manages four innovation eco- ecosystems on behalf of the Israeli government: Digital Healthcare (HealthIL community), Smart Transportation (EcoMotion community), Learning Technologies (LearnIL community),and Advanced Agriculture (GrowingIL community). Recently it created the Innovation Management community (The Catalyst), for supporting the entire mission and serving the innovation implementation in the large corporation associated with the other four communities.



HealthIL is the III's health innovation ecosystem comprised of over 500 startups, over 31 health organization, and all together 5000 community members. It is part of Israel's national program to promote Digital Health in Israel, and as such it is a joint venture of the Israel Innovation Institute, Israel's Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Social Equality.

The HealthIL mission is to foster development and integration of innovative solutions for healthcare organization challenges.

Over time, it created a platform for technology companies to connect with healthcare organizations based on defined needs and challenges. With ongoing projects with more than 25 Israeli health organizations, 550 challenges identified only in the past year and 500 technological companies as part of HealthIL community, HealthIL is the prominent integrator between healthcare challenge and tech transformation in Israel.
