In this context, both the Vice-President & Dean of research and the HU Research Committee view the promotion and encouragement of research ties with other academic institutions in Israel and abroad as a central pillar of the overall endeavor to enhance the University’s research profile. Among the most prominent of the University’s 50 multifaceted research centers are: the Institute of Evolution, the Interdisciplinary Center for the Brain and Behavior, the Max Wertheimer Center for Cognitive Processes and Human Performance, the Minerva Center for Youth Studies, and the Research Institute for Alternatives in Education.
