Israel Joins the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Israeli government today announced their participation in the World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) program. Dr. Ami Appelbaum, Chairman of the Board of Israel Innovation Authority and Chief Scientist of the Israel Ministry of Economy and Industry attended a signing ceremony in Israel earlier this week. The Israel Innovation Authority will represent Israel at C4IR.

Joining a network of countries including the US, China, Japan, and India, Israel will leverage its participation in the program to promote regulatory changes and to be exposed to regulatory innovation and technological governance worldwide. Israel’s participation will promote the smooth integration of innovative technologies into the Israeli economy and enable the Israeli hi-tech industry to secure its global leadership in new areas of activity.

Technological innovation is making huge strides in different fields including smart transportation, healthcare and medicine, agriculture and food, finance, and more. But regulatory agencies responsible for determining the rules of activity, competition, norms, and consumer protections have struggled to keep up with the rapid pace and challenges of technological progress.
