Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies

RIMS logoThe Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies at the University of Haifa (RIMS) was established in 1972. Guided by an interdisciplinary concept, the Institute conducts and promotes research projects, which encompass humankind’s activities relating to the sea, bringing to light what was known in the past, our involvement in the present, and what we may accomplish in the future. By combining disciplines, such as marine and coastal archaeology, maritime history, marine geology and coastal geomorphology, marine biology and marine resources, the Institute bridges between the Humanities, Sciences and Technology. The Institute conducts numerous collaborative research projects with other research institutions in Israel and abroad.
