Moreover, it is in continuous contact with society so as to make proposals and provide solutions to problems that arise within the agri-nutrition sector.
University of Thessaly (UTH) was founded in 1984. UTH is a prominent institution of Higher Education aiming to promote scientific knowledge through teaching and research, and to contribute to the cultural and economic development of the local community, and the society at large. It promotes scientific and academic excellence in all fields of expertise and rewards outstanding individual performances, establishing new scientific research units and fostering an environment that supports innovative actions.
Located at the Volcani Center campus in Bet-Dagan, near Tel-Aviv, ARO's six institutes are responsible for Plant Sciences, Animal Science, Plant Protection, Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences, Agricultural Engineering, and Postharvest and Food Sciences. ARO also operates four research stations, in various parts of the country, and serves as a testing center for agricultural produce and equipment. Israel's Gene Bank for Agricultural Crops is also located on the ARO Volcani Center campus.
While encompassing the full range of agricultural research activities, ARO focuses in particular on arid zone agriculture, enabling Israel - a country short of all the resources required for agriculture - to achieve among the highest levels of agricultural output in the world.
ASCA develops and manufactures environmentally friendly customized organic solar solutions on an industrial scale, offering unlimited design freedom for a wide range of applications, especially in the field of architecture, mobility and electronics.

The TRDC is one of eight regional research centers partially funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology. Operating under the academic auspices of Tel Aviv University the center’s 18 researchers have a mandate to conduct applied research for the benefit of the community in the area called the Triangle a region in central Israel that is home t0 250,000 mostly Arab inhabitants.
All the research in a diverse range of fields from alternative energy, pharmaceutical biotechnology, advanced farming techniques, computer science and other fields is funded by the awards of competitive grants. So far three start-up companies have been created based on research conducted at the center and more are expected in the next two years.
