פעילות בשכונת נווה פז

The Social Hub is the flagship social engagement program of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.  The hub facilitates engagement of faculty members, teachers and students  with diverse communities and strengthens the Technion's social commitment to its environment.

The Social Hub strives to make unique academic knowledge accessible to the public, and to expose the Technion community to the rich knowledge of communities, to build a mutually beneficial dialogue and to create synergetic partnerships.

The cooperation between the Technion and the community strengthens the social commitment of its teachers and students and, in turn, strengthens Israeli society.

The Social Hub's activity started within the Technion's Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning, and has expanded to additional faculties. The Social Hub also works with NGO's, civil society organizations, non-profits, culture and art institutions, leading academic institutions and local government.

The Social Hub is a member of international networks which aim to promote similar goals: The Educational Partnership for Innovation in Communities Network and Living Knowledge.

The Technion Social hub was established in 2011 by Prof. Rachel Kallus with the support of the Council of Higher Education of Israel.
