The Northwest chapter offers events, seminars and networking sessions with Israel’s top scientific, educational and business leaders, while providing critical support to the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, home to three Nobel scientists and one of the world’s finest technical universities. Israel’s only natural resource is the brainpower of its people. Technion graduates are the leading engineers, managers, high-tech professionals and entrepreneurs that power its economy, and its research and entrepreneurship now extend beyond Israel’s borders, truly making a global impact.
Collaboration between Cornell University and the Technion has created the Jacobs Technion Cornell Institute. The JTCI Roosevelt Island campus is expected to be completed this year and will house approximately 2,000 full-time graduate students. Other collaborations include the University of Michigan Weizmann Institute of Science and Technion Partnership, and the Technion Guangdong Institute of Technology in China.
