Virginia Tech and Hebrew University of Jerusalem to collaborate on research and student exchange

Although Virginia Tech and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are separated by more than 6,000 miles, the two institutions have a lot in common.

Both universities are leading the charge to grow safe and nutritious food for a growing global population. Both are working to address the challenge of securing safe and healthy water for people around the world. And both are preparing a new generation of leaders to tackle these and many other issues that lay ahead.

It is for these reasons that the two leading research institutions are establishing a partnership to collaborate on research and development. The partnership will not only benefit their home countries, but citizens around the globe.
