Introduction

Description In just six short decades of existence, Tel Aviv University (TAU) has evolved into Israel’s most diversified, influential and global institution of higher learning and research. It offers 125 schools and departments across the spectrum of sciences, humanities and arts; Israel's biggest biomedical research and teaching complex; and 130 research centers. At TAU we embrace the pursuit of the unknown. Our faculty, students and graduates are encouraged to set their imaginations free. It is thus no coincidence that TAU ranks among the top 10 schools in the world for producing successful startup founders, and places first in Israel among the Top 100 Innovation Universities globally. Mission Statement What if we could create a self-regulating bionic heart? A vaccine against cancer? A revolution in digital learning? Truly viable solutions to sustainable fuel, smarter cities or food security? An ethics of cyber? Algorithms for creativity? Asking these and other intriguing questions drives the Tel Aviv University community; we quest after multifaceted solutions to the complex issues of today. Our main activities include generating discoveries across the spectrum of sciences, humanities and arts; offering wide-ranging study and training programs at 125 schools and departments; fostering an innovation ecosystem that powers economic and cultural development; translating discoveries into real-world products that improve quality of life; promoting social leadership through community outreach and enrichment programs; and collaborating with academic, industry and government partners nationally and globally. TAU also runs dozens of scholarship programs that increase access to a world-class university education for young Israelis from outlying and economically distressed cities and from minority groups, as well as for students from developing countries in Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia.
