Ms Braverman, a University of Haifa alumni, will receive the honorary fellowship alongside three other recipients during the University of Haifa’s 50th Board of Governor’s Gala on June 20 at Caesarea National Park.
Also receiving honorary fellowships will be:
Maj. Gen. Orna Barbivai, Minister of Economy and Industry
Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, Director General of the Ministry of Defense
Mr. Idan Ofer, Philanthropist and Entrepreneur.
“It is really touching to be recognised with this distinguished honorary fellowship from my alma mater” said Ms Braverman, who founded Eco Wave Power when she was just 24. “To be in the same company as these distinguished leaders is truly humbling. I am also extremely proud to be a University of Haifa alumnus, as the university recently became the first Israeli University to adopt the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), showing its true commitment to sustainability and the future of our planet.”
The 50th Board of Governors Gala, titled “Preserving the Past, Protecting the Future,” will feature the award ceremony, as well as a special joint concert with multi-platinum recording artist Rami Kleinstein and Pablo Rosenberg. The university will also honor Elie Horn, a noted Brazilian businessman and philanthropist, with an honorary doctorate at the gala.
“University of Haifa puts a strong emphasis on social and environmental sustainability, in accordance with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” added Professor Ron Robin, University of Haifa president. “The University, and its leading researchers are fully committed to act according to such goals, and we hope to inspire our students and alumni to peruse the same principles. As a result, we are extremely proud of Inna Braverman, for founding Eco Wave Power, which is working towards wave energy commercialization. We find Inna’s work to be truly admirable and we wish her best of luck in her ambitious goal of changing the world, one wave at time.”
