New York Press Recognizes TAU's Interdisciplinary Energy Thursday, September 8, 2011
TAU has "a unique place among Israeli universities," says top U.S. Jewish newspaper
In an interview in the September 6, 2011, issue of The Jewish Week, Prof. Joseph Klafter, President of Tel Aviv University, sheds light on the extraordinary interdisciplinary research being conducted in medicine, the environment, and renewable energy at the school.
"It is something that comes naturally among scientists and if there is encouragement from the top, it only helps," said Prof. Klafter, himself an award-winning chemist.
The article profiles the interdisciplinary research taking place at the School of Neurosciences, the Porter School of Environmental Studies, and the new Supercenter for Renewable Energy, which includes a combination of physics, chemistry, and engineering, along with business courses that will prepare students "for strict regulations on such things as the uses of fuels in cars," Klafter said.
