• Gav-Yam Negev Advanced Technologies Park

    Fusing Academia and Advanced Technologies //

    Gav-Yam Negev Advanced Technologies Park hosts the unique Global Center for Cyber Technology, an initiative of academia, advanced research, local government, business entrepreneurship and the global technology industry. The Park’s goal is to leverage academic knowledge and translate it into purposeful production and valuable technology.




    Shaping the Future //

    Since its opening in 2013, the Park has become a magnet for high-quality talent. Over 1,500 engineers and researchers currently work in over 40 high-tech companies within the park, from budding startups to multinational companies. Over the next two years, the park plans to double capacity and reach the ambitious goal of 10,000 employees by 2026.


    City of the Future //

    Be'er-Sheva was named one of seven "cities of tomorrow" in a research study conducted by Brandeis University and T3 Consultancy. The Gav-Yam Negev Advanced Technologies Park proudly takes its place in Be'er-Sheva’s “Science Quarter,” alongside the Ben-Gurion University Campus, the IDF’s Technology Campus and the Soroka Medical Center.


    The Vision //

    “Be'er-Sheva will not only be the cyber capital of Israel, but one of the most important cyber security centers in the world” (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Cybertech Conference, January 2014).

    Following the Prime Minister's announcement, the Government of Israel has given their full support for turning Be'er-Sheva – and the Gav-Yam Negev Advanced Technologies Park in particular – into a world-class location for technological brilliance and innovation.
