ICL Innovation is the flagship initiative of ICL’s Open Innovation approach. With the goal of accelerating ICL’s development of sustainable new products and processes needed to solve major global challenges, we created the Innovation Incubator to enable the company to benefit from the full range of knowledge, creativity and business initiative, worldwide.
Through the development of cutting-edge products and processes, our Technology Incubator will help to assure ICL’s standing as a leading industrial company, working to solve the global challenges created by growing populations and increased environmental awareness. By embracing the Open Innovation approach, we will identify the best of the world’s innovations and harness the power of collaboration with scientists/entrepreneurs everywhere, to accelerate our growth.
To this end, we seek early stage innovative technologies, novel materials and cost-effective production processes that can be incorporated by ICL companies into their products in the areas of Agriculture, Food, Sustainable Energy and Engineered Materials.
Our main interest is in technologies that correlate with ICL’s core activities and make use of ICL’s primary source materials, whilst representing ingenious approaches to issues faced by ICL companies.
The projects selected will benefit from ICL’s Innovation Incubator commercial and business support. Each project will be adopted by one of ICL’s subsidiaries, and will enjoy full financial and developmental support over the long-term, both in the laboratory and in the field.
Our Open Innovation ‘Accelerator’ augments our strong R&D organization, which is comprised of approximately 500 employees that work at TAMI (ICL’s central institute for R&D located in Haifa, Israel) and at our other R&D facilities located in Germany, Holland, Israel and the USA.
