Message from the Chair

Mr. Shimshon Harel

Chair, Executive Board

Dear friends,

Welcome to the International Board and the Executive Board Portal.

The Executive Board is the Institute’s most senior governing body, responsible – among other things – for the election of the President of the Institute, approval of the annual budget, and the appointment of important committees, for example the Assets Committee and the Investment ad-hoc Committee.

The most important task of the Executive Board is to help the management of the Weizmann Institute of Science navigate the Institute towards prosperity and success. Through regular meetings and discussions, and by becoming engaged in various committees and think-tanks, members of the Executive Board have the power to influence the future of the Weizmann Institute and help guarantee its prosperity and success.

I invite you to browse through the Portal and learn more about the International Board, the Executive Board, their Committees, and their activities.

Sincerely,

Mr. Shimshon Harel
