"The United Kingdom is also proud to be Israel's partner in science. We both have world-class universities, we both have disproportional numbers of Nobel Prize winners for our size, and in so many areas now our scientists are working together – in neuroscience, in nanotechnology, in water technology.

 

"Our two countries are engaged in some of the most significant projects of our age. So it's a relationship that is flourishing and it's still got room to grow, and in the years to come I want to develop this cooperation for both our mutual benefit.

 

"My best regards once again, and here's to the future!" the British premier concluded.

Israeli Science Day events were launched Tuesday evening in a gala event at the Weizmann Institute of Science in the presence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Minister of Science, Technology and Space Yaakov Peri, Weizmann Institute President Prof. Daniel Zajfman, ambassadors from around the world and science and business people.
