The Innovation and Smart Transportation Unit has undergone a change in its organizational structure and is now part of the Ministry of Transportation and Road Safety. Its purpose remains focused on promoting smart transportation and leveraging its potential for the Israeli market and beyond. The unit’s work is expected to involve collaboration across various government departments and sectors, as well as with international partners. This reflects a growing recognition of the importance of smart transportation and its potential to improve mobility, efficiency, and sustainability.

For ten years, the Smart Mobility Initiative of the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office has nurtured a thriving ecosystem for the development of advanced mobility technologies and solutions. Today, the industry worldwide turns its vision towards Israel as we work together for a better future in smart mobility.

Since 2013 the International Smart Mobility Summit, organized by Initiative in collaboration with Keren Hayesod, is held every year and sets to join business leaders, innovators, top researchers, and policymakers from around the world for a global dialogue about the future of transportation.

The summit is attended by more than 5,000 people from 40 different countries, including policymakers and seniors from the industry and academy and provides a platform for numerous leading speakers from around the world, an exhibition of dozens of Israeli startups, and a B2B network enabling more than 1,000 B2B meetings between Israeli and foreign companies.

At the summit, we announce the winners of the $1 million SAMSON – PRIME MINISTER’S PRIZE to outstanding researchers in the field.

During the summit week, a variety of events in the field of smart mobility are held by governmental and non-governmental organizations
