Zuckerman Institute Mission

ZI Institute Logo BD

The Zuckerman Institute was established in 2015 to achieve the philanthropic vision of Mortimer B. Zuckerman. Its mission is to enhance collaboration and communication among the most promising scholars in science, technology, engineering, and math in Israel, the United States and Canada.

Times are changing. Technology has brought us closer and piqued our interest in all facets of life. Science and philanthropy are changing as well, both hoping to provide our society with enlightenment.

A gap exists between scientists on the one hand and the business and philanthropic communities on the other. The Zuckerman Institute strives to bring them together by offering dynamic alternatives to traditional resources.  The Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program, which the Zuckerman Institute jointly operates with universities in Israel and the US, enables scientists and scholars to push forward with their boldest research and take the necessary risks to find the solutions for tomorrow.

The Zuckerman Institute’s creation of the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program, through its international exchange of scholars, conferences, symposia, webcasts, publications, and countless other programs, has enabled a robust and continuous dialogue among scholars. When this happens, we, as an international community, not only benefit from scholars’ academic breakthroughs, but we also witness first-hand how international collaboration makes participating countries stronger, more prosperous, and more secure.
