Vision: having a significant impact on policy challenges
The Boris Mints Institute was founded with the intention to encourage research, planning and innovative thinking in order to promote a significant positive change in the world. BMI is focusing on designing strategic innovative plans to enhance the welfare of communities around the globe.
The world is thirsty for innovative, groundbreaking policy solutions to promote environmental sustainability, ensure food security, health and energy to all, and eradicate poverty. Yet, there is a dearth of applied, practical, policy-directed research on these issues. BMI addresses these challenges by operating on two levels: creating unique research grants and scholarships, as well as organizing disseminations and conferences focusing on contemporary global challenges.
BMI supports highly applied, practical and solutions-driven research, which is conducted by bright M.A and PhD students under the supervision of internationally renowned senior scientists. The Institute will ensure that no good idea goes to waste due to lack of funding and bring Israel-developed technologies to the world’s neediest populations – thereby enabling Israel to harness its renowned startup mentality in the service of humanity.
As a globally influential research institution, Tel Aviv University is committed to applying its know-how and experience toward solving real-world problems, and is uniquely positioned to operate the proposed Institute.
BMI's DNA requires that its innovative ideas be transferred in real time to policy makers. BMI has already held several academic events and extended significant support for research projects in Food Security, Renewable Energy and Conflict Resolution.
