What is the significance of being a graduate student at the ARO?
The Agricultural Research Organization (ARO), being the research arm of the Ministry of Agriculture represents more than 70% of Israel's agricultural research. Its uniqueness lies in the practical nature of the research pursued for the benefit of the farmers and consumers. The ARO scientists are involved in tuition through their affiliation with Universities and Colleges as adjunct professors such as Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences of the Hebrew University, Bar-Ilan University, Ben Gurion University in the Negev, Haifa University, Technion, Tel-Aviv University and others. During the academic year 2011-2012, 345 students chose to pursue their graduate research studies at the ARO.
ARO scientists supervise students for graduate studies (M.Sc, Ph.D and Post-doctoral) in all fields of the agricultural sciences with main focus on:
- Development of knowledge, technologies and products to ensure food security and its availability
- Assimilating practices in agriculture
- Providing solutions in the field of food, water and energy
