International Collaboration

The old adage, 1+1=3, is nowhere more apparent than in the synergy created by a meeting of the minds. Collaboration fosters innovation for the good of mankind. And the Technion attracts more than its share of partners.

The Joan & Irwin Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute

The Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute is a uniquely experimental, transdisciplinary graduate institute housed at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. A partnership between Cornell University and the Technion, the Jacobs Institute represents a next-generation model for STEM education, designed around industry-focused “hubs” that address specific areas of social and economic need. As the embodiment of the Technion and Cornell’s winning submission in the City of New York’s competition to create a new applied sciences grad school, the Jacobs Institute is growing the City’s tech sector and fostering technologies and companies that will have global impact.


Guangdong Technion Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT)

The Guangdong Technion Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT), inaugurated in December 2017, brings Technion’s world-class academics to the historic economic center of Shantou, China, with programs in engineering at the Bachelor, Masters and PhD levels. A joint project of the Technion, Chinese government and the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the new institute aims to create a new hub of innovation in the region, with particular focus on conservation and sustainable technology. GTIIT is the first Israeli university campus in China, and its 50+ new research laboratories are ushering in a new era of cooperative scientific research between Israel and China.


Additional Collaborations

MIT and the Technion have long been collaborating in research projects and student exchange programs. In November 2013, France’s Ecole Polytechnique signed an agreement for academic cooperation, cementing ongoing exchanges between the two. And most recently, the Technion has entered into three partnerships with Canadian institutions.

The Technion is collaborating with Canada’s University of Waterloo to promote pure and applied research in quantum information science, nanotechnology and water. The Technion is partnering with The Lassonde School of Engineering at York University in Toronto to teach its Technion e.Xpert® Program, a mix of academics and entrepreneurism. And the Technion and the Toronto-based University Health Network (UHN) have announced that they will establish the Technion-UHN International Centre for Cardiovascular Innovation, aimed at developing new ways to treat heart disease. Canadian partners include the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.

Every gift helps the Technion provide essential advancements to Israel and the world in science, technology, and medicine.
