Government launches pilot program to retrain unemployed hi-tech workers
"The program aims to place unemployed workers with quality skills and experience in the hi-tech sector in an effort to help advance the traditional industry," Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said Wednesday. "Our target is to reduce unemployment as a catalyst for economic growth and to advance the emergence out of the recession. The program is part of the target of achieving economic growth and advancing science and technology."
The program is part of an overall policy plan of the Chief Scientist's Office to integrate R&D workers within other industries. As part of this plan, the ministry is offering grants of up to NIS 60m. a year for projects in innovation and R&D.
