Prof. Jacob Bar, was awarded the "Honorary Member for 2009" award by the International Association for the Research of the Porous Media (INTERPORE) for his great contribution in the field

Transition phenomena within pores have many uses in groundwater hydrology, including the main issue of preventing their contamination, in oil reservoir engineering, in chemical engineering, in agricultural engineering (irrigation and drainage), in environmental engineering and even in medical engineering where the kidneys and liver act as a porous medium.

An impressive professional and personal achievement for Prof. Jacob Bar, Dean of the School of Engineering of the Kinneret Academic College in the Jordan Valley, with his winning, as the only one selected, the "Honorary Member for 2009" award on behalf of the International Scientific Association for Intraporous Research (InterPore). The award, for his contribution to the international scientific community in his field of expertise: transition phenomena in a porous medium, will be awarded to him at a ceremony to be held at Texas A&M University as part of an international conference to be held in March 2010.

The Executive Committee of the International Association for Intraporous Research unanimously chose Prof. Yaakov Bar as the sole winner of the award for the reputation he acquired following his extensive activity in the field of intraporous science, for his articles that contributed to the advancement of knowledge on the topic of mass and heat transfer phenomena in a porous medium, and for his books that are cornerstones in this scientific field.

Prof. Yaakov Bar, emeritus professor of the Technion and an international expert in groundwater hydrology, serves as the dean of the engineering school of Kinneret Academic College in the Jordan Valley. In the past, he served at the Technion as the vice president of the Technion for academic affairs, as the dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, as the dean of the School of Advanced Studies, and headed a loyal institution. Today he is also the editor-in-chief of an international scientific journal in the field of transition phenomena in a porous environment. Prof. Bar's works and books have a considerable influence and he is one of the key thinkers and researchers in the field.

Transition phenomena within pores have many uses in groundwater hydrology, including the main issue of preventing their contamination, in oil reservoir engineering, in chemical engineering, in agricultural engineering (irrigation and drainage), in environmental engineering and even in medical engineering where the kidneys and liver act as a porous medium.

Prof. Yaakov Bar stated that: "I am happy and excited about the decision to choose me. As the first recipient of this award and the international recognition that this has for my achievements in this field for decades"

About the college:

The Kinneret Academic College in the Jordan Valley was founded according to the decision of the Council for Higher Education with the aim of establishing a unique higher education institution whose purpose is to bring higher education to the northern peripheral region which includes the Jordan Valley, the northern valleys and the eastern Galilee, including the cities of Tiberias, Beit Shan, Afula, Migdal Himek, Nazareth , Safed, Kiryat Shmona and Hazor HaGalilit within the college, an engineering school was established to train engineers, mainly for knowledge-intensive industries. Kinneret College fosters excellence in teaching and research and emphasizes the personal relationship to the individual, initiates and leads processes for the sake of the community and the development of the Galilee. The students have at their disposal a modern university campus that offers the highest level of academic services in the country and a lively student atmosphere. College website

  1. Hello,
    Since I am from the college - Kinneret in the Jordan Valley
    They changed the name of the college several years ago, so if someone searches for it on your website, they won't find it because it is still called Jordan Valley College. I think it should be fixed
    Kinneret College in the Jordan Valley
    Thanks
