The Technion Knowledge Center for Innovation was established in 2008 by Prof. Miriam Erez, Recipient of the Israel Prize.
TKCI’s mission is to promote industrial Innovation as a means to ensure Israel’s sustained economic growth through the development, application and dissemination of knowledge among academia and industry.
TKCI conducts academic research on the topic of innovation on the individual, team, organization and national levels, as well as translational research to promote innovation in organizations based on the “Journey of the Idea” model developed by Prof. Erez. TKCI has developed a guide to innovation for organizations, within the Israeli Standards Institute.
Our diverse programs integrate between cutting-edge academic research and applicable industry expertise, and include:
- Organizational Innovation Process Implementation: development and implementation of unique tools and methodologies to integrate innovation processes within organizations.
- Industry Consortiums: leadership in consortiums as the Knowledge Center for several industry consortiums, and initiated the creation of a smart packaging consortium within the plastics industry. Proud member of EU’s EIT Food Program
- “Seeds of Innovation 4.0” – promoting advanced manufacturing and digitization in production
- Chief Innovation Officer (CINO) training program
- Forum for Executives in Innovation conference and lecture series
- Academic innovation workshops for international delegations
The Research Center for Work Safety and Human Engineering at the Technion was established in 1974 as a joint, endeavor of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management and the Faculty of Medicine, funded by a grant from the Committee for Research and Prevention in Occupational Safety and Health. It is a pivot of interdisciplinary research and teaching activities on topics of behavioral, physiological, medical and engineering aspects of safety at work, as well as general studies on human factors and ergonomics in engineering systems. It focuses on the capabilities and well being of human operators in the work environment.
The SEE Center was established in 2007, within the Technion Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management (IE&M), through the generous support of Hal and Inge Marcus. The goal of SEE is to serve as a worldwide hub for research and teaching in Service Engineering. This is achieved by developing engineering and scientific principles, which then support modelling, design and management of Service Enterprises, for example financial services (banking, insurance), health services (hospitals, clinics), government and tele-services (telephone, internet). Presently, SEE’s main activity is designing, maintaining and analyzing a repository of resources and data from telephone call-centers and hospitals, which is universally accessible to the extent possible. This is all preformed at the Technion IE&M SEE Lab.
The Technion Statistics Laboratory operates within the Technion Research and Development Foundation Ltd and is located in the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management. Staffed by PhD level statisticians and headed by Professor Paul D. Feigin, the laboratory provides high level statistical consulting and analysis services for researchers, both faculty and students, both inside and outside the Technion. Combining many years of experience with the incorporation of the latest methodologies and software technology, the Statistics Laboratory is able to provide the full range of statistical services – from study design, through data collection and data pre-processing, to formal analyses including graphical and tabular reports.

The Laboratory of Behavioral Research supports the research of faculty members and graduate students at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology. The Laboratory hosts research conducted with human participants in domains such as cognition, metacognition, decision making, organizational behavior, and behavioral marketing.
Experiment Management System: All the studies which are conducted as part of the laboratory activity, either in the lab room or online, are managed through the Sona Systems platform.
Questions regarding the lab, utilizing the available resources, or for taking part in our studies, please contact us at email@example.com
The Laboratory of Behavioral Research is located at the Lady Davis building at the Technion.
The lab includes two rooms, one for running experiments and one for administrative and student use. The experiment room has 8 desktop computers, separated by barriers. The administrative room is equipped with a desktop computer.
The computers are connected via a local network which has a shared server.
Scanning and printing services are available to users.
Headphones are available per request.
