25/03/2015
A 12-member team of chemistry professors from Israel’s Hebrew University is participating in a two-day seminar with the Indian Institute of Science here to encourage student exchanges

Israel’s Consul-General in Bengaluru, Menahem Kanafi, spoke about studying in his country, current student programmes between the two countries and scholarships. He mentioned the upcoming World Science Conference co-hosted by the Hebrew University and said, “We invite Indian students to be a part of WSCI to be held in Jerusalem from August 15 to 20.”

He said, “Israel has an excellent higher education system, with one-fourth of its institutions in the top 150 schools in the world. We are glad to be able to cooperate with and educate Indian students who will be leaders tomorrow.”

Prof. Sanford Ruhman from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and Prof. S. Umapathy from IISc’s Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry, led the first seminar, which aimed to strengthen the ties between the two institutions. It was pointed out that half of the 12 Nobel prizes won by Israel are for chemistry.

The conference, initiated by the Hebrew University, Israeli government and U.S.-based Nobel laureate Roger Kornberg, would bring brilliant students from all around the world, it was said.
