  • Technion graduates comprise over 70% of Israel’s founders and managers of high-tech industries.
  • Technion alumni have given Israel the greatest concentration of high-tech start up companies anywhere outside of Silicon Valley.
  • 74% of managers in Israel’s electronic industries hold Technion degrees.
  • Nine out of every 1,000 workers in Israel are engaged in R&D, nearly double the rate of the USA and Japan.
  • 135 out of every 10,000 workers in Israel are scientists and engineers, compared to the USA, in second place with 85 out of every 10,000 workers.


The mission of T³ is to escort breakthrough technologies from the initial point of discovery, through the process of development and licensing, to the formation of win-win ventures with industry - and beyond. Its commercialisation strategies, tailored to the requirements of each venture, enhance the market value and performance of Technion discoveries and increase their success in the global marketplace.

The T³ agenda includes:

  • Analysis of new inventions and concepts developed at the Technion
  • Licensing technologies developed at the Technion
  • Incorporation of spin-off companies based on Technion IP
  • Participation in the board of directors of affiliated companies
  • Negotiation and approval of the IP and business aspects of agreements with industry
