Thanks to a donation from a Pennsylvania charity, UConn will develop an exchange program with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology for students and faculty to learn at the separate institutions.

The exchange program has been established through the UConn Founcation after it received a donation from Satell Family Foundation, a Pennsylvania nonprofit that – among other things – supports energy and health care projects in Israel. The nonprofit’s founder, Ed Satell, graduated from the UConn School of Busines 50 years ago.

The exact amount of the donation was not disclosed.

Under the Satell UConn-Technion Leadership Program for Global Energy Sustainability, teams of faculty and graduate students will visit each other’s campuses to present ongoing research and discuss joint investigations.

Among the research conducted by the schools are fuel cells, molten salt technology, materials corrosion, concentrated solar power life enhancement, and large-scale stationary batteries.
