Israel Implementation Science and Policy Engagement Center (IS-PEC)

IS-PEC is one of the few centers in the world focused on implementation science (IS) and policy engagement, and the first of its kind in the country, established by Ben-Gurion University in a major city in southern Israel. With a broad faculty and expertise spanning academia, health systems, government, and industry, nationally and internationally, the university is well positioned to lead and facilitate the integration and promotion of IS and knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE).
