This new centre at BGU is the first of its kind in Israel and one of the few centres in the world focusing on implementation science (IS) and policy engagement. With its broad faculty and expertise across academia, health care systems, government and industry in Israel and internationally, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is positioned to lead and advance the integration and promotion of IS and knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE).
- BGU's multi-disciplinary research infrastructure, broad reach across many fields, and high level of collaboration allow for research focused on long-term, effective, sustainable, evidence-informed implementation while continuously developing the science of both IS and KTE.
- IS, KTE and policy engagement learn from various fields, including policy, economics, management, anthropology, behavioural economics, psychology.
IS-PEC is here to prepare future leaders in the most advanced methods to build a strong culture of evidence-based implementation and evidence-informed policy while contributing to global knowledge.
