National Stamp Marks 100 years of Technion

Israeli post gets smart with the Technion Centennial Stamp

The Israel Postal Company’s Philatelic Service is issuing a stamp celebrating the 100th anniversary of the cornerstone laying ceremony in Haifa of the Technion.

The new stamp will be unveiled as part of the Technion’s centennial activities, which will be launched on Tuesday President, Prof. Peretz Lavie, Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav and the postal authorities. 

The stamp shows a sketch of the old Technion building’s plans and the image of a nano parachute developed at the Technion at the lab of Prof. Eyal Zussman.  The Nanofiber technology recently led to the establishment of a prize-winning new company, NanoSpun through the T3 Technion Technology Transfer office. 

The Technion was Israel’s first academic institution and is today one of the most prominent in its field, Postal Company board chairman Sasii Shilo told the Jerusalem Post.

Ubiquitin gets ubiquitous through the post... Technion's first Nobel Laureates in Chemistry were also honored last year by a stamp released to celebrate their discovery. Read the full story here.
