JNS.org – The International Space University (ISU) will hold its annual Space Studies Program in Israel, marking the first time the institution will hold the training program in the Middle East.

The 2016 Space Studies Program (SSP) will be held at Israel’s Technion Institute of Technology in Haifa between July 12 and September 1.

“ISU has a long‐standing relationship with Israel in general and Technion in particular . . . It is therefore a genuine pleasure for ISU to further enhance this relationship and convene the SSP16 session in Haifa. It is evident that there will be considerable interest from other countries to discover more closely the amazing hi‐tech achievements and cultural richness of the host site,” said Prof. Walter Peeters, President of ISU.
