The Nancy and Stephen Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP)
The Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP) was set out to foster basic and applied multi-disciplinary energy research and advance graduate education in energy, leading to the adoption of clean and efficient energy technologies. The GTEP MISSION is to advance research in energy fields by supporting ambitious projects with global impact, to promote multidisciplinary cooperation, attract new faculty and top graduate students, investing in the promotion and development of appropriate infrastructure and strengthen academic and industrial national and international collaborations.
The Nancy and Stephen Grand Technion Energy Program is bringing together the best science and engineering researchers to work in a broad interdisciplinary track to discover and exploit alternative and renewable energy sources, to search for and develop alternative non-carbon based fuels, to seek solutions for more efficient energy use, and to reduce the environmental damage caused by the production and burning of fossil fuels.
GTEP was established in 2007 to spur multi-disciplinary research and to educate world-class scientists. Since then, GTEP has evolved into a dynamic national hub that has been making a significant impact both within the Technion and throughout the national and global scientific community. GTEP activities and support in research and education has produced major scientific discoveries, some of which have led to the establishment of promising start-up companies, forged strong industrial and academic ties in Israel and abroad, and attracted first rate faculty members and students.
This is the dawn of a new industrial revolution: a global transformation creating cleaner, more sustainable sources of energy to power advanced civilization.
