Israel sees a great potential in cooperation with India in the areas of higher education and research. It offers 100 post-doctoral scholarships for Indian and Chinese students.
Increasing number of Israeli universities have started offering programmes in English and are keen to have larger number of Indian students. This year, Tel-Aviv University, in cooperation with University of Mumbai, started offering a course in Marathi, which got a good response.

The delegation is keen to establish close cooperation with Indian universities and colleges.
