IsraelX

IsraelX is a national consortium of higher education institutions in Israel, led by the Council for Higher Education and the Ministry for Social Equality. IsraelX is the international arm of Campus - the Israeli National Project for Digital Learning, whose goal is to promote general, academic and professional education in Israel in order to reduce social gaps and accelerate economic growth.
Leading academic institutions such as the Technion, Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University, Haifa University, Bar-Ilan University, the Holon Institute of Technology and Shenkar College have joined together for a common vision: to provide excellent academic education to all citizens of the world, promote equal opportunities for students everywhere, and provide an advanced and quality response to the dizzying changes in the global employment market.
The unique collaboration was created out of a shared commitment and the belief that the State ‎of Israel, as a start-up nation that leads worldwide innovation and entrepreneurship, has the ‎unique ability to initiate and lead digital transformation in the online education world. Israel was rated one of the most innovative countries in the world and ‎it has the highest ranking in the world of the number of scientists per capita. These and other ‎benefits create an extraordinary potential to leverage technology to create advanced learning ‎options adapted to the changes of the digital era.‎
The Digital Israel Bureau in the Ministry of Social Equality is a government initiative which aims to harness and leverage the unique and significant opportunity provided by the digital revolution and the rapid advancement of information and communication technologies, to allow Israel to experience accelerated economic prosperity and social equality; to improve the quality of life for its citizens; and to transform into a smarter, faster government and world leader in this field.
The Council for Higher Education (CHE) is a public, independent and professional statutory corporation, responsible for all issues related to higher education in Israel. The CHE, in particular, sets policy in fundamental issues, ensures the system's academic quality and accredits new institutions and degrees – all while safeguarding academic freedom. The CHE was established under law in 1958. The PBC – its Planning and Budgeting Committee – was established in a subsequent government decision from 1977.
