It all Starts with a Question…
The Weizmann Institute of Science's more than 80 years of impact starts with a simple question and plenty of imagination and drive. But it takes even more to power our researchers and their laboratories to life-changing success. Individuals, corporations and foundations around the world invest generously in the Weizmann Institute’s research, graduate education and scientific outreach programs, including many Canadians who share our belief in the power of research. Continuing to give scientists the time, space and resources to imagine and discover is the priority of Weizmann Canada.

Weizmann Canada
Let’s take a minute to unpack the deep and breath of research that takes place at the Weizmann Institute of Science and why these numbers from the last year are so impressive. Having 3,195 studies published speaks to both the research output and the scientific impact that the institute has. The Weizmann Institute is known for its innovative, groundbreaking research in many fields, this number of publications shows that our researchers are making significant contributions to the larger scientific community. Having 277 laboratories and 106 multidisciplinary centers and institutes speaks to the Institutes priority to allow scientists to explore in an unfettered capacity. It's important to note that the number of labs and centers is not an indicator of the quality or impact of research, but when we look at number of studies published from inside these physical spaces, we know the research being conducted is going to make a difference. Having 141 collaborations with other institutions and 41 collaborations with other Israeli institutions is striking for several reasons: collaboration is essential for scientific progress, collaboration can lead to greater impact, and collaboration promotes diversity. The high number of collaborations that the Weizmann Institute has engaged in is a testament to its commitment to advancing scientific knowledge and their desire to work with others to achieve that goal.To learn more about the last year of research at the Weizmann Institute click through the first ever digital impact report here: www.weizmann.ac.il/impact-report/ ...
