Fellows Program



  • Ramot’s Fellows Program offers a unique opportunity for Tel Aviv University’s graduate students to gain in-depth experience with university technology transfer and technology commercialization.
    By working closely with Ramot’s management team and contributing to numerous projects intended to enhance our understanding of the commercial potential of the University’s technologies, Fellows will gain dynamic hands-on valuable educational experience.

    Several other well-established Fellows Programs globally, such as the one exists at Columbia University in NYC, have received tremendous interest and have demonstrated the great value to both the University and participants. After graduation, former fellows have been resoundingly successful in pursuing exciting careers in leading corporations at positions in the intersection of science, technology, business, and law.

    Ramot’s Fellows Program is founded in collaboration with Sharon Kaplinsky, CEO of Star Tree Ventures.
     
    This is a competitive program. Only the most qualified candidates will be accepted after a screening process including interviews for the top candidates.
