Beer-Sheva’s Advanced Technologies Park, established in cooperation with Ben-Gurion University and located just steps away from the Marcus Family Campus, is home to international and Israeli high-tech and cyber security companies. BGU is their source for the best and brightest employees.
Homeland and Cyber Security
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is moving its technology intelligence units and training bases to the Negev. Having BGU – a world-class academic and research university that has made Beer-Sheva the cyber capital of Israel – in the region helped influence the IDF to make the move.
Desert and Water Research
Ben-Gurion University is conducting groundbreaking research in fields that include desert and water research; bio- and nanotechnology; robotics; neuroscience; medical research; Israel studies; Jewish thought; and more. BGU researchers are making an impact on people’s lives in the Negev, throughout Israel and around the world.
