Partners in the Global RetuJorh
The Technion maintains its leading edge through a global network of 24 societies around the world.
Programs established with society support include: scholarships, fellowships, academic chairs, and
lectureships, recruitment of new faculty, dormitories, teaching and research laboratories, major
research institutes, capital projects and the growing network of Centers of Excellence. The largest
society, the American Society for Technion (ATS), based in New York City with regional offices across
the United States, has been a vital partner in the Technion's unparalleled growth and achievement for
more than half a century.
The mission of the ATS is based on the commitment shared by its growing network of supporters that
the future of high technology in Israel is at the Technion.
