The vision of  Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurionto to bring life and development to Negev/ Beer-Sheva, a desert area comprising more than sixty percent of the country, led to the establishment of BGU in 1969.  BGU continues to support  David Ben-Gurion’s vision by conducting outstanding research in such fields as bio-tech, medicine, arid zone agriculture, solar energy and water resource management.
