Prof. Uriel Reichman, founder of the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, says "new facility in Paphos will be graduate school in innovation for Eastern Mediterranean nations."
When Prof. Uriel Reichman set up the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya 25 years ago, its charter declared that Israel’s first nonprofit, private institution for higher education would train its students in freedom of thought and leadership and work to attract Jewish and other students from all over the world.
But now, Reichman said, the college will hopefully be able to tick that box too, and do its part for the region. The university is planning to set up a new, private not-for-profit innovation and entrepreneurship graduate school in the coastal city of Paphos, in Cyprus, with the blessing of Mayor Phedonas Phedonos.
“The municipality has agreed to provide and build the facility and we will set up what we hope will become a study center for all the nations of the Eastern Mediterranean,” he said, referring to Cyprus, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinians, as well as “whoever else” wants to come.
