The Science, Technology and Space Ministry’s Golan Research Institute will be renamed for the late prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, who died in 2012 and whose 100th anniversary of his birth will be marked in October.

It will be called the Yitzhak Shamir Research Institute. The ministry, headed by MK Ofir Akunis, said on Sunday, noting that Shamir, who died at the age of 96, fought against many international efforts to withdraw from the Golan Heights.

The center, founded 33 years ago and is one of eight such centers in the periphery, conducts research on plant diseases and parasites, health services to the elderly and water reservoirs.
