The program includes meetings with leading academics, managers of venture capital funds, government officials, and visits to leading companies in the area.

Prof. Klafter said, "Tel Aviv University is proud to play a focal role in strengthening academic relations between China and Israel. The program of studies for senior officials and leading entrepreneurs from the city of Nanjing, the first of its kind at Tel Aviv University, opens opportunities for important academic, scientific and research activities."
