The call of Ben Gurion
An Israeli university in the middle of the desert is drawing scholars away from the long-established leading institutions around the world - among them Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University.
Ben Gurion University holds much promise in nanotechnology and other sciences, with plans and government approval already in place for the creation of a $9.3 million advanced technology park adjacent to the university. For the fields' leading researchers, the reasons to leave Cambridge for Be'er Sheva - where BGU was first established a mere 35 years ago - are myriad and complex.
