Maya Dekel- Avramovich
WaterEdge.IL Project Manager.
Maya holds a bachelor’s degree in Water Industry Engineering from Kinneret College and has experience in the Israeli water sector.
Maya sees The State of Israel as a known world leader in the various fields of water and thinks that the WaterEdge.IL community is designed to preserve this degree and take it one step further. “It is known all over the world that there is nothing like the Israeli brain, and in the field of water we have already proven this.” She claims.
Maya believes that by creating collaborations between the various companies traditional and new), between different funding opportunities in Israel and around the world, and by connecting academia to the water community and diverse government institutions, the water sector will continue to be productive in Israel and around the world.
WaterEdge.IL Marketing and events coordinator.
Lior believes that one of our most important tasks as a community is to be able to make what is happening in Israel and around the world accessible to members of the WaterEdge.IL community. “There are many opportunities for making connections and collaborations organically and it is our job to inform the members of the community and centralize for them the opportunities to promote themselves in the various areas of water” she claims. As part of her role as a marketing coordinator, she advertises the various options for the community in the digital tools available to us.
Beyond that, Lior believes that the community should initiate a dialogue that will promote the Israeli water sector in all areas – innovation, employment, climate commitment, and more. By identifying gaps, and complexities we can produce a dialogue that will lead to action.
