The Negev Foundation’s Ohio-Israel Ag & CleanTech Initiative (OIAI), is an organization that works to improve Ohio water and wastewater management by bringing technologies and educational opportunities from Israel to Ohio businesses, municipalities, and professionals. A very successful part of our programming includes professional development missions to Israel where Ohio professionals have the opportunity to travel to Israel and participate in exclusive site visits to learn more about Israeli technologies and management practices first-hand. Because of Israel’s global status as a driver of innovation in the utility market, we are able to secure these visits at facilities working at the forefront of the water management field, allowing our mission participants to see advanced technologies that they may not be exposed to otherwise.


This March, we will be conducting another professional development mission to Israel with a focus on municipal drinking water and wastewater. The mission is built around tours of private and municipal facilities that work in the areas of:


  • Stormwater management
  • Water utility monitoring
  • Small and large scale wastewater treatment
  • Contaminant removal from water
  • Toxic algal bloom management
  • Urban agriculture, drip irrigation, and fertigation
  • Other areas relevant to Ohio’s unique water management needs


The mission takes place from Saturday, March 17 – Saturday, March 24, 2018 and will include attendance at CleanTech Israel 2018, a professional conference and showcase in Tel Aviv. Through our contacts in Israel, the OIAI has secured a land travel package totaling $2,500 per person which includes all land transportation, group meals, lodging, and other fees associated with group mission activities. This rate does not include airfare (estimated at about $1,300), single occupancy lodging supplement, tips, travel insurance, and personal expenses. For a more complete list of what the package includes, as well as more details of mission site visits, please see the attached brochure or contact our Program Director, Sarah Horowitz.
