Cyber Week & Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center, Tel Aviv University

Tel Aviv University (TAU) is Israel’s largest and most comprehensive research and higher learning institution, with 30,000 students studying in nine faculties and 125 schools and departments across the spectrum of sciences, humanities and the arts. Almost half of the cohort are graduate students. Situated in Israel’s economic and technological capital, TAU shares Tel Aviv’s unshakable spirit of innovation and openness.


The Blavatnik ICRC was established in 2014 in Tel Aviv University through a joint initiative with the Israel National Cyber Bureau at the Prime Minister’s Office, with the following goals:

  • Establish a leading global cyber research and knowledge center
  • Boost the volume and quality of scientific research for cybersecurity
  • Attract researchers and advance academic training in cybersecurity.


Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center (Blavatnik ICRC) supports broad academic interdisciplinary research on cyber through a competitive allocation of research grants from a dedicated fund. Since 2014, ICRC has funded 75 diverse research teams, many of which include partners from world’s leading research institutions. The Blavatnik ICRC draws on extensive intellectual networks both within Tel Aviv University and internationally, as well as on lasting partnerships with government and industry stakeholders. The Blavatnik ICRC funds research in all aspects of digital society and cybersecurity through competitive grants, enabling and supporting profound interdisciplinary cooperation across TAU’s faculties, departments and schools including Exact Sciences, Computer Science, Social Sciences, Law, Engineering, Management and Humanities.


Cyber Week is comprised of dozens of academic, business and policy conferences, expert workshops, and networking events. First launched at Tel Aviv University in 2011, the free-to-attend Tel Aviv University Annual International Cybersecurity Conference has been attracting thousands of visitors ever since. The Blavatnik ICRC conducts the event, which has grown to become the Israel National Cyber Week. In June 2016, we welcomed 5,000 attendees from over 60 countries; In June 2018, more than 8,000 attendees from over 80 countries took part. The Main Plenary provides a unique opportunity to hear global experts and leaders at the 1,200-seat Smolarz Auditorium. The Academic Perspectives conference brings together prominent and early career academics from various disciplines and leading institutions worldwide. 


Blavatnik ICRC has become Israel’s cyber ecosystem hub, bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders from Israel and the world.
