's and the world's dependence on foreign oil.

One of the major benefits of the designation is that it will help TAU attract the best minds in energy research. With this new funding, they will be able to provide support for Ph.D. and post-doctoral students and two new faculty positions one in the Faculty of Engineering and another in the School of Chemistry. TAU hopes to recruit leading Israeli researchers who might otherwise have sought positions abroad.

"Naturally, TAU needs to have the ability to attract the top minds in the field of renewable energy. The most organic way to do that is to direct talented Ph.D. students to this field, and then have faculty positions available for them when they're ready," says Prof. Rosenwaks.

In addition to the new funding, the university has pledged to establish President's Scholarships to meet their goals. The scholarships will provide students with sufficient economic support through their studies, so they can devote their time to research and to becoming leaders in the field, Prof. Rosenwaks adds.

A home for research excellence

Beyond the research group that is part of the designation, the Renewable Energy Center is home to a number of outstanding research groups that are working towards ending dependence on fossil fuels, Prof. Rosenwaks says. "TAU and the Renewable Energy Center bring together the world's leaders in renewable energy research, supplying the laboratories and equipment necessary for scientific and technological breakthroughs," he says. "It's an exemplary model of interdisciplinary co-operation."

The Center promotes advanced research in renewable energy based in a variety of sources, including solar, wind, and biomass, along with the technologies for storing and managing the energy. Some of the leading fields of research at TAU include nano antennas to revolutionize solar energy, optimized electricity grids, and energy harvested through photos
