“Technion has a great contribution to making Israel’s future prosperity, and Israel’s prosperity can not be of great benefit to other countries as well.” Winston Churchill, The late Prime Minister of Great Britain
Entering into the next millennium, we see a growing amount of Technion Societies. To date, there are 17 participating countries. Thousands of Technion society members worldwide support the institute’s development by generously funding scholarships, faculty chairs, and projects including new buildings, dormitories, laboratories and Interdisciplinary Research Centres of Excellence.
The Technion Society of the Netherlands was founded on the 2nd of April 2008 in Rotterdam.
This department of the Technion is the Dutch chapter of the world-wide “Friends of Technion” foundations. The Technion Society of the Netherlands is an organization that promotes education, science and technology by providing critical support to the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, ranked among the world’s leading science and technology universities. This has been achieved by offering and investing in vital support for medical and technological innovation in the technology and by organizing collaborations between the Israeli and Dutch industries.
The Technion Society of the Netherlands is also involved in the conceptualization, planning, organization and execution of business and academic events to create synergy between individuals from both countries and from a variety of sectors. The purpose of such events is to promote technology and innovations from Israel.
