Global Partnerships - Israel

FAU is building and strengthening ties with universities, research and education partners across the globe.


Traditionally, research collaborations with academy and industry in Europe and the Near East focus on medicine, science and engineering, defense and aerospace, as well as ocean and atmospheric sciences. Projects in these disciplines are supported by a range of funding mechanisms and they often focus on innovation and industrial applications.  

Collaborations with Israel stand out, as FAU is mandated by the Florida legislature to develop partnerships with Israeli academic institutions and companies. Under this partnership, the Florida-Israel Institute manages cultural and academic exchanges with Israel. One example of collaboration with Israel is formed by the FAU International Center for Emergency Management in partnership with the Chaim Sheba Medical Center.
