      The ancient city of Jerusalem has entered a thriving era of modernization, with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at the forefront. In a country with the most startups per capita, our students, faculty, and alumni continue to ignite innovation in Israel and across the world.

      Our Role in Israeli Innovation

      Our research has led to over 130 commercialized ventures, nearly 9,000 patents, and over 2,800 inventions. Our breakthroughs offer solutions to the world’s most pressing issues, from global security to food shortages and curing diseases. The Hebrew University has been at the helm of the world’s most enterprising startups, including Mobileye and Briefcam. The past century has been remarkable, but the best is yet to come.
