Braverman is the youngest person in the history of the university to receive such honorary fellowship.
Braverman, a University of Haifa alumni, will receive the honorary fellowship alongside three other recipients during the University of Haifa’s 50th Board of Governor’s Gala on June 20 at Caesarea National Park.
Also receiving honorary fellowships will be:

“It is really touching to be recognized with this distinguished honorary fellowship from my alma mater,” said Braverman, who had founded Eco Wave Power when she was just 24. “To be in the same company as these distinguished leaders is truly humbling. I am also extremely proud to be a University of Haifa alumnus, as the university recently became the first Israeli University to adopt the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), showing its true commitment to sustainability and the future of our planet.”
“University of Haifa puts a strong emphasis on social and environmental sustainability, in accordance with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The University, and its leading researchers are fully committed to act according to such goals, and we hope to inspire our students and alumni to peruse the same principles. As a result, we are extremely proud of Inna Braverman, for founding Eco Wave Power, which is working towards wave energy commercialization. We find Inna’s work to be truly admirable and we wish her best of luck in her ambitious goal of changing the world, one wave at time,” said Prof. Ron Robin, University of Haifa president.
