It is afternoon in Haifa as I enter the seminar room. Waiting for me are Israel’s lesser known investments in her future – not security barriers or Iron Domes, but people. Today, I am meeting undergraduates of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s medical school, one of the country’s leading universities that also ranks within the top 100 universities globally.The students sit in silent attention.
