Welcome to the AABGU Southwest Region! We’re honored to help you get to know Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel’s most innovative institution of higher learning and research.

Join us at local events to learn about the great strides that BGU is making in fields such as medicine, alternative energy, desert studies, water purification, nanotechnology, biotechnology, homeland security, and many other disciplines.

We’ll share breaking news with you about exciting projects taking place at Beer-Sheva’s Advanced Technologies Park adjacent to BGU’s campus; the moving of IDF’s strategic intelligence units to a Negev; and the infusion of over 4,000 graduate students into BGU’s academic programs over the next several years.

I personally look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the best way to connect to BGU. And if you’re planning a trip to Israel, let me know so I can arrange a tour of campus that will cater to your own special interests. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

Warm regards,

Philip Gomperts Sig
