Bar-Ilan University | President’s Report 2022

12 An International University Thanks to two joint master’s programs launched this past year, students can now study chemistry and brain science at Bar-Ilan—while in Strasbourg, France, or in Milan, Italy. Spearheaded by the International School, under the leadership of Deputy President Prof. Moshe Lewenstein, the degrees allow graduate students accepted to Bar-Ilan to spend part of their two-year course of study at an overseas university. In turn, they gain exposure to new ideas, methodologies, and research cultures, and bring knowledge back home to the BarIlan community. The program in chemoinformatics, which combines physicalchemistry theory with computer- and information-science techniques, is part of a consortium that includes institutions in France, Italy, Russia, Slovenia, Ukraine, and Portugal, and is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus Program for supporting student mobility. The program in brain sciences, which focuses on combining neuroscience and data science, is a partnership with the Lisbon Institute of Technology. 2 new international master's programs, and 2 new indexes for shaping policy Prof. Moshe Lewenstein The International School, BESA & The Lookstein Center
