Research

 
 
By definition, universities are instrumental in creating and disseminating knowledge in every sphere of learning, for the benefit of society. Thus, research is at the heart of the academic endeavor at the Open University and plays a pivotal role in maintaining high levels of course development and teaching. The continual involvement of faculty members in their fields of research ensures that the courses and study programs they develop reflect an accurate and updated perspective. The university strives to recruit and support faculty members with the strongest possible research capabilities.
Faculty members at the OUI are involved in research covering a broad range of fields in the social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, engineering, and the exact sciences. They work independently or in cooperation with faculty members from other universities in Israel and abroad, and exercise complete freedom in their professional decisions. Many have won international recognition and are considered leaders in their research areas. Open University researchers win grants from competitive local and international funds. Research outputs are disseminated to the scientific community via conference presentations, scientific publications and, where applicable, patents, with the aim of transmitting scientific knowledge that benefits the academic community and enhances Israel's development.
