One of Israel’s premier universities, The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, issues a general invitation to students, researchers and teachers around the world to continue their work in Israel.

“Following the surge of antisemitism and anti-Israel rhetoric around the world, the Technion invites undergraduate and graduate students and academic faculty residing abroad to come to our campuses in Haifa to carry out their research, teaching and learning,” the university says in a statement.

The invitation extends to faculty, post-doctorate researchers, and current and potential students of all levels at universities abroad, subject to an application and approval process. Due to the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, the start of the academic year at The Technion, like most of the other research universities in the country, has been pushed back to at least December 24.

Because of the current climate on campuses worldwide, “many Jewish and Israeli students and researchers currently face physical and verbal threats that cause them to think twice about everything they do and prevent them from participating in academic activities in those institutions… we have announced a program for the rapid integration of students and faculty members from around the world looking for an academic refuge during these difficult times,” Technion President Prof. Uri Sivan says.
