60 young adults between the ages of 16 and 18 years of age will take part in Teen Tech 2019, half of who will be International participants and the other half Israeli students.
Over the course of 9 days, teams will get to know one another, experience life in Israel and Haifa, and meet scientists, researchers, and representatives of Technion and Rambam Hospital, as well as hi-tech start-up companies.
International participants will be hosted in university apartment-style dorms. Participants will be divided into mixed work groups; each group will be assigned a mentor and given a mission to generate and promote innovative solutions to medical and healthcare issues. The competition will be refereed by a professional committee of the highest scientific level.
All participants will be invited to continue the innovative activity in a virtual technological incubator designated exclusively for alumni of this program. This “exclusive coalition of young entrepreneurs” aims to encourage ongoing relationships between participants and mentors after the completion ends.
Selected participants will be invited to meet Professor Hershko for a Q & A session.
