The Institute for Theoretical Physics was founded in 1995 to foster theoretical physics research at the Technion. In 2005 Jacques and Colette Lewiner made a generous gift to the Institute and the naming ceremony took place in June 2006.

The mission of LITP is to promote excellence by creating an exciting international atmosphere achieved through sponsoring distinguished lecture series, workshops, meetings, and advanced schools. All these activities take place at Technion and expose the faculty and students to world renowned scientists including Nobel and Wolf laureates. This helps to bridge our distance from the big scientific centers in Europe and North America. The LITP also helps young Technion faculty to host promising young coresearchers and postdoctoral fellows. The LITP hosts international workshops, visiting scientists, and postdoctoral fellows.

Supported by the Russell Berrie Foundation, the Government of Israel through TELEM, and Technion, RBNI was inaugurated in 2005 and aims at positioning the Technion and the State of Israel at the forefront of global Nanotechnology research and development.

RBNI continues the historic role of Technion in shaping Israel's technological agenda, including visionary investments in aerospace research and development, microelectronics, optoelectronics, and materials science.




Solid State Institute

The Solid State Institute is an interdisciplinary research center designated to house and serve scientists from various faculties who are interested in the study of solids and solid interfaces. Pure and applied research projects, some of which may ultimately be of use to industry, are being carried out at the Institute in many individual and/or collaborative research efforts. The physical proximity fosters cooperation between scientists from different disciplines and different faculties that otherwise would not take place.
