A personal perspective:
In Tal's words: "Being an Azrieli Fellow has been a real privilege for me. Apart from generous financial support, the program created a community of academics were we could share our impressions, motivations and difficulties. The Fellows Forums were enjoyable, enriching and inspiring at once. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for being given this opportunity".
