Ben Gurion University of the Negev

Ben Gurion University


What struck us the most about the BGU scientists and consultants we interviewed at Ben Gurion University of the Negev, (BGU) a public research university in Beer-Sheva, Israel, was their need to respect cultural and traditional differences in order to insure success of their projects– to build competence and skills for survival through inter-University programs and cooperation—in Kazakhstan, Argentina, Egypt, Jordan, Kenya and the Palestinian Authority.”Lord (George) Weidnefeld asked us to find an interesting way to spotlight the cutting-edge solutions developed by BGU. He was a British publisher, newspaper columnist and philanthropist on good terms with popes, prime ministers, presidents. We were inspired to develop “In Search of Solutions” –a one-hour film concept for television–to chronicle their “practical humanitarianism” as world leaders of the next millennium in the field of technology, agriculture and sustainable development of human resources.
