University of Haifa logoNovember 23, 2017 | A 25-member delegation from Ohio wrapped up a visit to Israel recently, scouting for cutting-edge Israeli technology and academic partnerships. The high-profile delegation, including a group of 11 bipartisan lawmakers, visited the University of Haifa during the trip from November 8-16, to hear presentations from leading Israeli scholars on AI, drones, agritech, big data, autonomous cars and marine technology. “Israel has a well-earned reputation as the ‘start-up nation,’ and innovators at University of Haifa are the source of a notable amount of these technological breakthroughs,” said Karen Berman, CEO of the American Society of University of Haifa, according to a report in The Yeshiva World. “We hope that the delegation’s visit to the University bears fruit for the state of Ohio for years to come,” she said. A member of the delegation, J. David Heller, a past board chair of the Northeast Ohio Medical University and a current board member of Cuyahoga Community College told Yeshiva World: “Colleges and universities are playing a key role in creating economic opportunities not just in educating a workforce, but by incubating and launching innovative start-ups. The Haifa model has a lot to offer. Hopefully this visit helps connect Ohio’s and Israel’s higher education leaders who can work together researching and developing life-changing technologies.”
