“It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the European Committee of the Weizmann Institute of Science.
We are a non-profit organization, dedicated to furthering the development of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.
History has repeatedly shown that curiosity-driven research leads to unexpected breakthroughs and has a meaningful long-term impact on all of us.
Our goal is to enable such scientific research and raise financial means to support the work of our scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science, for the future of humanity.
This website aims to share with you a glimpse of the broad and fascinating science that comes from the Weizmann Institute. Through this website, I invite you to step into a magical journey. A journey in the footsteps of human curiosity, passion and knowledge, a journey to learn and come closer to understanding the mysteries of life and the secrets of the universe.
Thank you and enjoy the WOW – Wonders Of Weizmann (Institute of Science).”
Chair of ECWIS, and
Vice Chair of the International Board of the Weizmann Institute of Science
Explore our flagship projects
The climate crisis affects every aspect of our civilization. To change our trajectory, we need to develop science-driven, fundamental breakthroughs that revolutionize how we live. And we need to do it faster than ever before. We can no longer accept small steps forward. And we can’t leave the course of scientific discovery to chance – to the fluctuations of market forces, international politics, and human behaviour.
Brain and Neural Science
A flagship initiative to accelerate neuroscience research. The Weizmann Institute of Science is in the perfect position to lead the charge, with an overarching goal of revealing new understandings of the brain, and paving the way towards treatments and cures for neurological diseases and disorders.
Frontiers of the Universe
A challenging experiment with the potential to improve physics’ Standard Model. The Frontiers of the Universe project will prioritize high-impact areas in astrophysics, cosmology (the study of the history of the universe), and particle physics research, with vast potential for new directions and growth.
An essential tool for empowering and accelerating scientific exploration. With its substantial expertise in computer science and neuroscience, the Weizmann Institute is uniquely qualified to realize the huge potential of AI for the future of scientific discovery.
