Institute presentation

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel’s first university, is a multidisciplinary institution of higher learning and research, where intellectual pioneering, cutting-edge scientific discovery, and a passion for learning flourish. Research and creativity have always been the cornerstone of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem since its inception in 1928.  For over 80 years, Hebrew University researchers have not only carried out outstanding basic research, but have also responded to the needs of society. The University is justly proud of its position at the cutting edge of world science. Its researchers publish widely in leading international scientific and scholarly journals, conduct collaborative research projects with noted scholars from other countries and compete successfully for research grants from international and national funding sources (ERC, FP7, NIH, DFG, Human Frontier, Howard Hughes, ISF).The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has been ranked among the top universities in the world in two comprehensive surveys conducted by The Times Higher Education Supplement of London and Shanghai University. Funding of more than $150 million supports 2,700 research projects in progress. Within the framework of these projects, 45% of all the student body (23,000) are graduate students and are working towards advanced degrees, gaining invaluable experience as the project leaders of tomorrow. The University has educated and trained thousands of students - 28% of all doctoral candidates in Israel are enrolled at the Hebrew University- providing the skilled manpower needed for many aspects of Israel's development.
