Modern Israel's innovations began in the first collective communities, or the 'Kibbutzim', in which new immigrants from over 130 nations found themselves experimenting with new agricultural methods and creating Israel's first industries. Innovative spirit and the Israeli brain together with successful teamwork, problem-solving and technical skills learned during military service have contributed by cultivating a knowledgeable nation of scientists, engineers, doctors and professors and among them, many researchers.

On April 11, 2019 Israel became the fourth country of the world to successfully land a spacecraft on the moon. Israel's high concentration of Nobel Prize laureates in comparison to its relatively small population reflects its innovative achievements.
