Ben-Gurion University (BGU) on Friday announced that a research agreement with the University of Johannesburg was reinstated after the institution previously decided to sever its ties with BGU over what it called the university’s support of the Israeli military.

According to a BGU press release, the universities on Friday signed a contract to continue their collaborative research on water purification and the conversion of algae into energy.

"This agreement embodies the principle of academic freedom," the press release said. "It seeks to promote universities as open spaces for discussion and debate; forums for challenging orthodoxies and freedom of thought and speech."
