Day 1

Start-ups & Innovation

Israel, today, has been recognised as one of the world’s most developed economies, and a large share of that is attributed to the innovation economy that the country fosters. Its open and free markets, venture capital availability and technological edge have much to offer to India’s economy as well. In this Purva-Paksha session students will explore sustainable innovations and how those impact the economy. Students will also be presenting on the following topics: 
  • Expanding energy conservation & sustainable living;
  • Life in 2050: How science & technology are changing the lifestyles;
  • Most innovative start-ups and what are they doing 

Day 2

Defence & Digitisation

India is the largest buyer of military equipment from Israel, which, in turn, is the second-largest defence supplier to India, after Russia. India is also the tenth-largest trade partner of Israel, and the third-largest from Asia. Military capability is one of the major pillars of Israel’s growing innovation economy. In this Purva Paksha session, the teens at the convention will discuss the role that the military plays when it comes to establishing peace, defending threats and how technological advancements are changing the defence dynamics. Students will be presenting on the following topics:  

  • Defence technology as an instrument of national policy;
  • Emerging technological innovations & AI in armed forces;
