IDC HERZLIYA


Preparing for the future


Programs ranging from 3D printing to neuroscience will take place at IDC’s Drahi Innovation Building


Set for completion in 2022, the Drahi Innovation Building is set to become IDC Herzliya’s new epicenter for higher learning and research collaboration. The building, which was made possible


thanks to the Patrick and Lina Drahi Foundation and businessman Joey Low, will contain state-of-the-art labs in a unique space designed by architect David Robins. It will encourage collaborative endeavors and enable students, faculty and researchers from all of IDC’s schools to engage with representatives from business, technology and industry. Overall, the Drahi Innovation Building will


serve as a bustling home for cutting-edge research on health, business, sustainability, government and security, as well as new learning technologies. The center will house many of IDC’s existing labs, enabling them to focus on their own research, better work with each other on collaborative projects and launch new initiatives to respond to social and economic challenges. Within its walls, students from multiple disciplines will take part in innovative programs featuring virtual and augmented reality, human-computer interaction, digital fabrication, 3D printing and more. As part of its mission to foster


collaboration between industry and academia, the building will also hold targeted executive education courses for industry and business leaders. What’s more, it will provide technological guidance and mentoring to students’ start-ups, serving as an incubator for projects specializing in human-computer interaction, AI and big data innovations in areas like fintech and disaster management. “In the entrepreneurial spirit of IDC


Herzliya, we are embarking on a major change that will enable us to prepare for future challenges,” says Prof Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president. “As we said 26 years ago when we founded IDC, knowledge should not be stored in disciplinary silos. From the beginning, we introduced a unique interdisciplinary model of education. The Drahi Innovation Building will soon be the core of our university, and by bringing together researchers and experts from diverse fields, creativity is likely to be generated.”
