TAU professor awarded honorary professorship from Tsinghua University E-mail

On 13 June, Tel Aviv University (TAU) President and Professor Joseph Klafter became the first Israeli to receive an honorary professorship from Tsinghua University in China.

The prestigious honour is considered one of the world’s highest honours, and has been bestowed upon top academics, including Nobel laureates.

TAU and Beijing-based Tsinghua University, one of China’s leading universities, have been collaborating closely in the field of nanoscience since 2014.

The award was presented to Professor Klafter for his “impressive leadership”, which contributes to the bold and successful partnership between the two universities.

Zvi Heifetz, Israel’s Ambassador to China, congratulated Professor Klafter at the ceremony, saying: “Prof. Klafter is an outstanding scholar, scientist and university president. On behalf of the state of Israel, I would like to congratulate him for receiving an honorary professorship from Tsinghua University. This appointment stands for Israel and China’s flourishing relations, as well as Tsinghua University and Tel Aviv University’s close relations.”
