Why Invest in Israeli Scientists?

- Promoting pluralism through bringing new understanding about Jewish identity to Israel.
Last year, we conducted a study that examined the barriers scientists face in returning to Israel, and the contribution to Israel’s GDP attributable to those scientists who did return.
We found that for the 103 ScienceAbroad members who returned in 2017, Israel will gain a significant economic benefit of US$255 million over the next five years, compared to a loss of US$5.5 million in direct income over a typical career period of 30 years, for every Israeli scientist who did not return.
