      Nobel Winner: Joining 'Horizon 2020' Will Bring More Pressure

      Nobel Laureate in Economics, Professor Yisrael Aumann, told Kol Yisrael (radio) that the agreement Israel signed with the European Union in order to be part of the 'Horizon 2020' research project is inappropriate, as one should not try to mix politics with science.

      Professor Aumann said that those who supported the government's signing of the agreement were inviting additional pressures - academic and other - to be placed on the State of Israel.

      Aumann noted that those of the scientific establishment who argued that the signing of the agreement was essential to the State are those who lean toward the left, and do not represent her.
