A second hearty mazel tov is in order to the Director of the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney, Jake Lynch, for yet another MAJOR BDS FAIL.
Try as he might, he can’t get it right.
Here at JDU last month we reported.
“The New South Wales government has announced $300,000 over three years to fund a partnership between photonics researchers in Australia and Israel to develop a communications system that will speed up the next generation of computers.
The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) at the University of Sydney will work with Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.”
The article below from the Jerusalem Post is a follow on from the previous one, regarding the initiative Prof. Moti Segev had a major hand in organising .
Leading Technion physicist Prof. Moti Segev to receive Israel Prize
Professor Mordechai Segev, a physics researcher in the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, will be awarded the Israel Prize in physics in May, it was announced on Sunday.
“Professor Segev is a pioneering physicist in the field of optics and lasers. His innovative contributions are a source of inspiration and his scientific work is quoted in thousands of scientific articles,”the Israel Prize committee wrote.
Education Minister Shai Pirson and Technion President Professor Peretz Lavie called Segev on Sunday to congratulate him.
The Israel Prize is largely regarded as the state’s highest honor. It is presented annually on Independence Day in a state ceremony in Jerusalem in the presence of the president, the prime minister, the Knesset speaker and the Supreme Court president.
The Jewish Virtual Library says:
“The Israel Prize is the most prestigious award in Israel, given to those who displayed excellence in their field or contributed strongly to Israeli culture.
First awarded in 1953 by Minister of Education Ben-Tzur Dinor, the Israel Prize has been awarded every year since during a state ceremony on the eve of Israeli Independence Day. Usually, Israel’s President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Knesset and President of the Supreme Court are all in attendance for the award ceremony.
