Bavaria Israel Partnership Accelerator (BIPA) closes 10th edition

Go back

On December 14th we celebrated the closing of the 10th edition of our Bavaria Israel Partnership Accelerator (BIPA). Over 40 students from Bavaria, Israel and for the first time ever - the United Arab Emirates, did an outstanding job working on challenges coming from 9 Bavarian company partners, and worked on solutions that will go long into the future, all with the help of their experienced mentors.

Teams worked on challenges involving the future of talent recruitment, hybrid meat, making internal hospital processes more efficient, developing a monitoring system for bee hives and many more. The final event concluded two-months of virtual work, and included the teams’ final presentations as well as BIPA alumni and participants sharing their experience from this unique program.

"We’re bringing the most unlikely partners together. Students and companies from Bavaria, Israel and the United Arab Emirates - that is where the magic of BIPA happens." - Morten Edzards, Program Director of BIPA.

Making this all possible is thanks to the great partnership between the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship at the Hochschule München, the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg, the Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, FOM Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management, Tech7 - Negev Innovation in Israel and this year for the first time the Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi

This year we had nine amazing corporate partners giving challenges to our teams: AVANTGARDE Experts, the Bavarian Food Cluster, TÜV SÜD, Anzen, beeonic, PS Cooperation, Kreisklinikum Wörth, Regensburg Business Development GmbH, and the rBITech GmbH.

This program is made possible by the Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Landesentwicklung und Energie, the Israeli Consulate General and the Landeshauptstadt München. Thank you for all your continuous support!

We wish the best of luck to all of the BIPA 10 participants and company partners and welcome them to the BIPA alumni community!
