A delegation from Mohammed VI Polytechnic University made a reciprocal visit in late March. Magen David Adom (MDA), Israel’s leading emergency medical response organization, and BGU signed an academic affiliation agreement in February. MDA paramedics will train at BGU’s new medical simulation center and participate in joint research.

BGU and Soroka University Medical Center were also awarded NIS 10.8 million over four years to create The Lab Pre-acceleration Program by a new Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology grant program encouraging entrepreneurship. The BGU/ Soroka partnership, to be led by Yazamut 360° , the University's entrepreneurship center, will support applied basic research in its early stages. In September, a year after the signing of the Abraham Accords, BGU and Université Internationale de Rabat in Morocco signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on research and education. The signing ceremony was conducted via Zoom. In October, BGU and Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco signed an MoU to collaborate on scientific research projects, in addition to student and faculty exchange programs, with a focus on sustainability issues. The partnership is supported by global companies ICL (Israel) and OCP (Morocco).
