Program Overview


The Food Safety & Security Summer Institute is a unique program offering graduate-level students with tools to meet the growing need for a new generation of well-rounded academics who can combine their specific expertise with a broad understanding of food security-related issues.


Beyond the top-level academic courses, students will participate in an exciting social and cultural program that will allow them to interact with other students and to be exposed to Israeli agricultural innovation.


The purpose of this program is to explore the many dimensions of food security. Together, students and lecturers from different countries and disciplines develop a new “language” of food security – in a manner of true interdisciplinary education.


The Food Safety and Security Summer Institute is open to graduate students from any institution of higher learning worldwide. 


Lecturers will include faculty from Tel Aviv University and leading experts from other institutions in Israel and abroad.


Students successfully completing the Summer Institute courses will receive a Certificate of Participation as well as an academic transcript acceptable at most universities worldwide.
