“The grand challenges of the 21st century are all multidisciplinary” states Technion President, Uri Sivan. This is at the heart of the Technion’s methodology.
The Technion is committed to innovative thinking, collaboration and hard work. It has been a partner in innovation with Israel from the very beginning: from building roads to building an air force, from shaping a successful start-up nation to shaping a science-literate society. In 2022, the Technion was ranked #1 in Europe in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the second year in a row and it also holds the highest number of U.S. patents of any university in Israel and Europe.
