Universities of The Future, Research and Science in Israel

The S. Neaman Institute is leading a movement for critical examination of the university of the future and higher education in Israel. In this context, in December 2004, the Institute sponsored an international scientific conference entitled "The Transition to a Mass Higher Education System - International Comparisons", in cooperation with the United States-Israel Educational Fund, which manages the Fulbright Program for student and faculty exchanges, and the ISEF Fund. The purpose of the Conference was to learn from the experiences of other countries in the world (United States, Australia, Italy, the U.K., Germany and Sweden.) how to create a national policy that enables broad access to higher education, without endangering the level of excellence in research which has already been attained.


Lectures were presented by internationally leading researchers in the field of education, and senior figures from the Israeli higher education system. Participating the conference were heads of colleges and universities, senior representatives from the Council for Higher Education and the Planning and Budget Committee, and the Budget Branch of the Treasury.
