As part of the joint operations, representatives of the IATA will work together with Ramot, the university’s technology- transfer company, and the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center at Tel Aviv University and open a joint aviation innovation center to identify and develop knowledge and technology relevant to the field of international aviation.

In addition, the IATA became a member of the Cyber Center forum at the university and was among the sponsors of the International Conference on Cyber Security held recently at the university.

Tel Aviv University Vice President Prof. Raanan Rein, who signed the agreement on behalf of TAU, called it an important step in the university’s relationship with international companies and industry and demonstrates its leading role in entrepreneurship, innovation and research.

The IATA is a global organization incorporating 260 airlines and representing about 83 percent of all passenger and cargo transport worldwide. It deals with a wide range of areas in airports including safety, security, financial issues, regulation, environment and a variety of processes aimed at simplifying and streamlining procedures on the ground and in the air.
