The Weizmann Institute of Science
The Weizmann Institute of Science is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary research institutions.
The driving force behind the founding of the Sieff Institute and the spirit that inspired its scientific activities was Dr. Chaim Weizmann, a world-renowned chemist who headed the World Zionist Movement for many years and served as the first president of the State of Israel.
Over the years, the Weizmann Institute has grown with the country and been the source of a number of Israeli milestones. Institute scientists were pioneers in the field of cancer research in Israel. Others planned and built the country’s first electronic computer, one of the first in the world; while yet others founded the first nuclear physics department and erected a particle accelerator next door. They were the first to establish a company for transferring knowledge from academia to industry, and they initiated the founding of a science-based industrial park near the Institute. The Institute has also been home to pioneering research in the brain studies, nanotechnology and new methods for exploiting solar energy.
Each year, approximately 500 scientists from dozens of countries around the globe come to visit or work on the Weizmann Institute campus and about 25 international scientific conferences take place at the Institute.
