BGU logoNovember 2, 2017 | The Wisconsin Water Council signed an agreement with Ben-Gurion University‘s Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research during a trip to Israel by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker this week who was leading a trade mission to strengthen collaboration with the midwestern state. Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, in the southern city of Beersheba, announced the agreement which it said “calls for collaboration on water-related applied research aimed at introducing new technologies into the global marketplace.” Another agreement, signed between the Wisconsin Water Council and the Israeli Innovation Authority, aims to develop a new partnership in which Israeli and Wisconsin water tech startups “will collaborate on piloting and developing new applications for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and other Wisconsin water utilities.” Governor Walker welcomed the agreements and said they “will strengthen the sector in both countries, and are expected to open new markets to water technology companies in Wisconsin and Israel.”
