The Israel Postal Company’s Philatelic Service is issuing a stamp marking the 100th anniversary of the cornerstone laying ceremony in Haifa of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

The new stamp will be unveiled as part of the Technion’s centennial activities, which will be launched on Tuesday by its president, Prof. Peretz Lavie, Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav and postal authorities. The stamp shows a sketch of the old Technion building’s plans and the image of a nano parachute recently developed at the Technion to detect toxins in the air. The NIS 2.60 stamp was designed by Naama Tumarkin.

The Technion was Israel’s first academic institution and is today one of the most prominent in its field, said Postal Company board chairman Sasii Shilo.
