Academy Members at the Forefront of Global Science
The status of The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities as the flagship organization of Israel’s scientific community is based, among other things, on the prestige of its members in the scientific world.
Each of the Academy's members has made a distinguished, lasting, and internationally esteemed contribution in their field to the advancement of human knowledge and to shaping the society and culture in which we live. The broad recognition of their work is reflected in their receipt of the most distinguished international prizes, such as the Nobel Prize, the Abel Prize, the Shaw Prize, the Turing Award, and the Fields Medal, and of Israel’s highest awards, such as the Israel Prize, the EMET Prize, and the Rothschild Prize.
Members of the Academy have also been honored by international research institutions, elected to membership in academies of science around the world, and received honorary degrees from prestigious universities.
