A comparative outlook on the development of scientific and Technological research in Israel and in other Middle Eastern countries by quantitative indi

Thomson Reuters published in 2011 a study of the many changes that have occurred in the last decade in research activities in the Muslim Middle East, as reflected in its database, ISI. The study reports impressive developments in terms of research policy, investments in research, and research outputs. These processes take place mainly in five countries: Turkey, Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Following this study, We performed a comparative analysis of the development processes of scientific and technological research that have taken place in Israel and in these Middle East countries.
Quality of Engineering/Scientific Research at The Technion and at Other Israeli Universities - A Global Comparison

Quality of Engineering/Scientific Research at The Technion and at Other Israeli Universities - A Global Comparison

The goal of this study, which was commissioned by the Technion and conducted at the S. Neaman Institute during 2005-2006, was to examine the level of engineering research at the Technion and at other Israeli universities in comparison to other countries, using objective tools. In addition, the study examined the methods which are being used for evaluating the impact that research has on the economy, industry, and society in Israel.

The goal of the study was to examine the activity of the Nanotechnology Institute over time, and to estimate the results and the effects on the activity of the researchers at the Institute.
Evaluation of the Space Industry

Evaluation of the Space Industry's Impact on the Israeli Economy

This project is operating under the auspices of the S. Neaman Institute and the Economics of National Security (ENS) Research Program. Its goal is to map out the interconnections between Israel's academy, national defense system and industry in light of the country's growth in space industry and in space technology R&D.
Evaluating the "Rothschild Fellowship" Program

Evaluating the "Rothschild Fellowship" Program

The main goal of the research was to evaluate the impact of the program on the candidates' careers and to assess their chances of pursuing academic careers in leading universities and research institutions in Israel. The research population included 359 candidates who applied to the program between 1996 and 2005. Three groups are included in the analysis: candidates who received the fellowship (Rothschild fellows), candidates who their application was turned down by the evaluation committee and candidates who chose to decline the fellowship.
PRIME: Nanodistrict2

PRIME: Nanodistrict2

The Samuel Neaman Institute participated in the European Nanodistrict2 Project as part of the PRIME program. The project focuses on the dynamics of the development of the nanotechnology field in academic research and in research institutes as well as on the development of industry based on nanotechnologies in different sectors.
Facilitating Collaboration in Stem Cell Research through Intellectual Property

Facilitating Collaboration in Stem Cell Research through Intellectual Property

The goal of the research is to create an infrastructure for designing a policy concerning research, development, and knowledge transfer in the field of stem cells. This policy was intended to encourage scientific innovativeness as well as help lever Israel's position as a leader in this field in the global arena.
