International cooperation ensures the free flow of expertise – the lifeblood of global academia – and thus underpins academic and scientific progress. TAU already has hundreds of informal, scientist-to-scientist collaborations, but seeks to establish larger, more formalized and long-term joint research initiatives and centers.
Target: At least one more joint research program with a prominent international university at 15 TAU schools within 5 years.
International Post-Doctoral Fellowship Fund: Post-docs provide the most expert and high-quality research assistance to faculty members than any other type of student, driving forward both publications and external grant funding. TAU’s 5-year target is to increase the number of overseas post-docs at TAU from 180 to 350 annually.
Joint Research Projects with Universities Abroad: Donors may enjoy the opportunity to launch programs connecting TAU researchers with their own alma maters/home institutions. Multimillion-dollar joint centers of this kind are being funded by donors at TAU today in smart cities, bioinformatics and brain studies.
Chair for Visiting Scholars: A vital means of bringing prominent researchers to TAU to teach students and build new academic relationships. TAU’s target is 45 more visiting faculty annually by 2024.
