Call for policy papers for the Yuval Ne’eman Workshop for Science, Technology and Security

Yuval Ne’eman Workshop for Science, Technology and Security is an independent think tank established in 2002 by Prof. (Res. Major-General) Isaac Ben-Israel in conjunction with Tel Aviv University’s Harold Hartog School of Policy and Government and the Security Studies Program. Commemorating Yuval Ne’eman - Israeli theoretical physicist, the founder of Israel's space program and Minister of Science - the Workshop researches the intersection of science, technology and security.

The Workshop expands its authorship and seeks original, timely, and policy-relevant analyses to continue shaping public and policy debates. The intersection of Science, Technology and Security include, inter alia, theory and applications of

  • Cyber and digital space
  • Space exploration
