Israel’s first prime minister David Ben-Gurion once said, “It is in the Negev where the creativity and the pioneer vigor of Israel shall be tested.”

Learn how American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev plays a vital role in sustaining Prime Minister Ben-Gurion’s vision by creating a world-class institution of education and research in the Israeli desert, nurturing the Negev community and sharing BGU’s expertise locally in Israel, the Midwest and around the globe.

Schneider will discuss BGU’s cutting edge research that includes advancements in alternative energy, desert and water research, cyber security and nanotechnology such as the partnerships with universities in the Great Lakes Region.
