MIGAL has several ways of delivering knowledge to the industry. In light of recent efforts by the Israeli government to strengthen the Galilee region and establish the Agri-Food Tech Valley in it,  the institute develops the necessary infrastructure and tools for injecting knowledge and scientific access to the region. 

Food Institutes, accelerators, and technological incubators are examples of such infrastructure, and have already enabled the launch of knowledge-based ventures created by MIGAL.
