Ben-Gurion U. and UChicago research collaboration targets water resource innovations
Date:6/26/2013

oved swiftly following the signing of an initial memorandum of understanding in Chicago on March 8, 2013 to explore a research partnership that would innovate water production and purification technologies to meet a growing thirst for fresh water resources globally. Leading the efforts are Matthew Tirrell, the Pritzker Director of UChicago's Institute for Molecular Engineering, and Moshe Gottlieb, BGU's Frankel Professor of Chemical Engineering.

For its part, the Institute for Molecular Engineering will commit tens of millions of dollars to the molecular engineering of water resources over the next decade. The institute is pursuing the molecular engineering of water resources as one of five emerging research themes, with plans to hire up to six faculty members specializing in this area. BGU researchers will have a significant presence at Hyde Park to further facilitate the collaborations.

"The Institute for Molecular Engineering aims to bring molecular-level science to technological problems of global importance," Tirrell said. "Water technology clearly meets that standard, and the institute brings new ideas for materials, membranes, biotechnologies, and catalytic technologies, among other approaches, that could address major needs in this domain."

Tirrell's and Gottlieb's teams met for two days in Israel in April to explore their mutual interests in water chemistry, materials science, flow in soils and other porous substances, microbiology, and nanotechnology. The first day of meetings took place on BGU's main campus in Beer-Sheva. The researchers reconvened for a second day at BGU's Sede Boqer campus, site of the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research.

The Israeli government founded BGU with a mandate to spearhead the development of the Negev Desert. BGU has worked at the forefront of water-related research for more than four decades, having developed several innovative technologies in the field. Work at the Zuckerberg Institut
