Please join us for this stimulating presentation (with complimentary lunch to follow), by Dr. Meir Zadok, who holds a doctorate in Economics and Policy studies from Lancaster University in the UK, with a particular early interest in the financing of higher education. Israel is widely known as a country of science and technology and is among the world leaders in both the quality and volume of it's activities in research and development. There are various modes of operation that have evolved to maintain its high performance. This seminar will highlight and explore Israel's success in these areas.
