Israel collaborates with Hong Kong PolyU School of Design E-mail

Israel is further widening its collaboration with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on design school student exchanges and joint projects, and the presentation of an art and design exhibition at PolyU Jockey Club Innovation Tower.

A signing ceremony was held on 12 January between the two design schools: Israel’s Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem and Hong Kong’s PolyU School of Design. Ms Liv Sperber, Vice President of Bezalel Academy, was in attendance and Sagi Karni, Consul General of Israel to Hong Kong, and PolyU President Professor Timothy Tong attended the signing ceremony.

Established more than 110 years ago, Bezalel Academy is Israel’s oldest institute of higher education. Focusing on the interaction of tradition with evolving technologies, it has become one of the most prestigious schools of its kind in the world. Various Israeli universities already have a solid partnership with PolyU, mostly in the fields of business and science & technology.

This new collaboration between the two renowned design schools will open up opportunities for student exchanges, research collaboration, staff exchanges and collaboration in educational programmes.
