Digitalisation and rapid advances in the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence necessitate a new approach to education that prepares students to be open to multiple disciplines during their studies and lifelong learning afterwards. Israel’s University of Haifa is a leading research institution. Under the leadership of its president, Ron Robin, the university is fostering international interdisciplinary research in collaboration with leading global research institutions. Professor Robin's vision calls for the interdisciplinary research approach that will allow the university to develop varied areas of knowledge under the auspices of joint, innovative and unexpected "umbrellas" that will foster breakthroughs. Among other subjects in his presentation, our speaker will cover the following:
- Israel's higher educational excellence - how does Israel produce such innovative minds and create breakthrough technologies?
