About Us

Fertile ground for growing your initiative

Nestled in the heartland of the thriving Jordan Valley’s agricultural community, the Kinneret Innovation Center (KIC) is a technology innovation hub and a “living lab”, established to provide a holistic environment for the development and in-field testing of innovative agriculture and food technology solutions that could help feed the world in a responsible and sustainable way.

The KIC is founded on the partnership between the Kinneret Academic College and Zemach Regional Industries Ltd, a cooperative owned by 27 agricultural communities in the Jordan Valley. The Center’s HQ offices are located on the banks of the Sea of Galilee, on campus at the Kinneret Academic College.
The KIC aims to attract and develop new talent, ideas, entrepreneurs, investments and enterprises to the Jordan Valley, leveraging the extensive assets of the founders and strategic partners and the agricultural heritage to create new economic levers and rewarding employment opportunities in the region.
