Operating Budget

The operating budget of the Weizmann Institute of Science is around 1.5 billion NIS per year. A third of this funding comes from the government of Israel. The rest of the Institute’s income is generated through scientific discoveries, competitive grants, private philanthropy, and scientific services offered by Institute core facilities to academic and commercial partners. Scientific discoveries generate significant income from licensing agreements made through Yeda, the Institute’s technology transfer arm.
