The cabinet on Sunday approved a national plan to create a center for excellence with the aim of bringing outstanding researchers from abroad to Israel. 

“The government views the bringing in from overseas of outstanding Israeli and Jewish scientists and technicians as an important policy tool in raising the level of excellence at institutions of higher learning and in strengthening the supply of skilled workers in the economy,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s press adviser said in a statement.

"We have an opportunity to bring in scientists and technicians due to the relatively good situation of the State of Israel and the less beneficial situation in other places.  This is an important core of know-how for growth and advancement in Israel …  I think that this is a very important plan – to bring Israelis back to the country," Netanyahu said at the cabinet meeting.
