The Weizmann Advantage

Powered by our world-leading fundamental and multidisciplinary research approach, the Institute for Environmental Sustainability (IES) will lay the scientific foundations needed to develop and monitor these real-world solutions. Backed by the full force of our bold, agile and collaborative culture, it will work as a dedicated platform for education, support, data, shared resources and collaboration across disciplines and research centers.

As of 2020, products based on Weizmann research have generated over $33 billion in total global sales. The Weizmann Institute of Science’s Bina incubator unit and Yeda tech transfer arm have an outstanding track record of translating scientific and technological breakthroughs into useful applications, and they will feed a pipeline of innovation that can help reverse the negative impacts of climate change and create a healthier planet.

As global leaders in science for the benefit of humanityincluding Canadian roots in sustainability dating back to the 1980s ― our goal is to make the next 10 years count.

“The next ten years are crucial. We have so many environmental challenges in front of us. And, I think science is what gives us rational optimism, in order to deal with those challenges.”
— Prof. Ron Milo, Co-Leader of Weizmann’s Institute for Environmental Sustainability
