The Swiss Institute for Dryland Environmental and Energy Research was dedicated in May 2013.
At the ceremony Prof. Daniel Guggenheim, President of the Bona Terra Foundation, said
There is a parallel between Switzerland and Israel. Both had to face difficult land conditions. Both made a success of these existential conditions. Let us hope that other countries will be able to overcome their challenges through the Swiss Institute.
You can see a short video about it.
SIDEER's webpages are here.
Or you can read a pdf brochure about the exciting research going on there.
Wish them luck for good discoveries!
