Your gift will have significant impact worldwide: Scientific discovery will have global benefit, Israel’s academic and scientific stature position will increase worldwide, and Israel’s international profile will be raised.
BGU’s research developments and scientific advancements will affect both the population across the street and across the globe, fueling research within Israel and around the world. As part of the global academic community, BGU’s students, faculty, graduates, and post-doctoral fellows share their energy, skills, and expertise internationally. Positive experiences with our “start-up nation” through collaboration, interaction, and personal encounter have the potential to advance Israel's scientific standing in the world and improve Israel’s international profile.
An introduction to the emerging field of homeland security demonstrates the difference a gift to BGU can make. Each day Israel rises to the challenge of protecting itself from enemies near and far. Israel has had no other choice but to be a leader in the area of homeland security, a field which has steadily moved beyond mere physical protection and includes issues such as: deterrence, defense, communications, preparedness for an ever expanding list of scenarios, providing for the security of society, and the protection of populations, borders, infrastructure, and information.
BGU’s Homeland Security Institute was established in response to these issues to pursue research and technologies that address Israel’s security challenges and those of the free world. BGU, with expertise in the areas of robotics, cyber technology, satellite use, and remote sensing, is a leader in field of homeland security and the only university in Israel to have such an institute. BGU researchers collaborate internationally at the highest levels to address the challenges of our time.
Support of homeland security research at BGU will enable our researchers to meet these challenges and contribute to the homeland security needs of Israel and its allies. BGU’s leadership role in the field will contribute to Israel’s increased academic and scientific stature. The establishment of global collaborative relationships will be a positive contribution to Israel’s international stature and well-being, as each BGU researcher, faculty and students alike, becomes an ambassador of Israel as they bring their voices to universities and scientific communities around the world.
