Additional Collaborations

MIT and the Technion have long been collaborating in research projects and student exchange programs. In November 2013, France’s Ecole Polytechnique signed an agreement for academic cooperation, cementing ongoing exchanges between the two. And most recently, the Technion has entered into three partnerships with Canadian institutions.

The Technion is collaborating with Canada’s University of Waterloo to promote pure and applied research in quantum information science, nanotechnology and water. The Technion is partnering with The Lassonde School of Engineering at York University in Toronto to teach its Technion e.Xpert® Program, a mix of academics and entrepreneurism. And the Technion and the Toronto-based University Health Network (UHN) have announced that they will establish the Technion-UHN International Centre for Cardiovascular Innovation, aimed at developing new ways to treat heart disease. Canadian partners include the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.
