The conference aims at bridging the gap between industry and academia in Israel.

 Introducing the next generation of scientists to the rapidly evolving field of formulations, The ADAMA Center for Novel Delivery Systems in Crop Protection in Tel Aviv University (The ADAMA Center) hosted its first “The Chemistry of Formulation” conference at The Peres Center for Peace and Innovation in Tel Aviv, Israel.

During the conference, leading experts from ADAMA, HP Indigo, Hava Zingboim SkinTech, SolarEdge, Kornit Digital, Redefine Meat, Liposphere and CannaSoul spoke about the key role of formulations in a wide variety of industries ranging from crop protection and high-tech, to cosmetics, nutrition and others. Over 200 students studying for advanced degrees from leading academic institutes in Israel as well as representatives from different companies, attended the conference and learned about the importance of formulation science and what a career in this exciting and growing field looks like across different industries.

“For ADAMA, innovative formulations in crop protection means products that deliver greater value to farmers while improving sustainability in agriculture to guarantee food supply. We established the ADAMA center with Tel Aviv University in order to create specialization in delivery and formulation technologies which are applicable to industry and cannot be studied as a profession in academic institutions anywhere in the world, leading to a growing shortage of experts in the field,” said Yoav Avidor, ADAMA’s VP Innovation, Development, Research and Regulatory Affairs. “This conference is another step towards bridging the gap between industry and academia, and we are thrilled to share our experience with these highly motivated students and look forward to their future contributions to the field.”

“Formulation science is a foundation pillar for R&D in nearly all fields of applied sciences and industries, ranging from crop protection to the development of novel vaccines or novel smart materials. Despite the key role that formulation science hold, many students are not aware of its significance, or the skills and processes involved. The Center’s goal is to raise awareness among students in chemistry, materials science, biotechnology and other related fields about this vital field, and to provide them with theoretical and practical knowledge, so we can help them to become the leading formulation experts of tomorrow” said Prof. Roey Amir, the head of the ADAMA Center at Tel Aviv University.
