Trans-Disciplinary Innovation Program 2015 – Hebrew University, Jerusalem (Scholarships Available)

Deadline: January 15, 2015

Applications are now accepted for the 2015 Trans-Disciplinary Innovation Program taking place from July 5, 2015 to September 10, 2015. The Trans-disciplinary Innovation Program (TIP) is a new cutting edge international platform, which provides intense educational program that weaves together computer vision, big-data and bioengineering, following with an unprecedented opportunity to personally interact with Nobel Laureates and a competitive business and academic accelerator.

About the Fellowship

Located at the Hebrew University Safra campus in Jerusalem, the summer Trans-Innovation Program (TIP) will recruit entrepreneurs, leaders, scientists and engineers from around the world for the purpose of developing innovations through a trans-disciplinary approach to problem solving. TIP exposes participants to a culture of innovation and exploration through a world-class curriculum, hands-on training workshops, interactive group discussions, behind-the-scene tours at emerging startups, and onsite visits to major technology companies.

Educational tracks will include: computer vision, big-data, bioengineering/biotechnology and entrepreneurship.

The didactic phase will be followed by an inspiration week, where students will have the opportunity to interact with Nobel Laureates in the World Science Conference.

As the summer progresses, smaller teams will begin to form around common interests in order to address specific challenges, using tools acquired during the summer. The team project is the centerpiece of the curriculum where students are facing a challenging, interdisciplinary, and real world problem. At the end of the 10 week summer session, students will present their results before a panel of individuals composed of representatives from the private and public sectors to determine winners.
Winners can choose to continue to the acceleration phase of the program (seed-funding, space and mentorship at the Hebrew University).
