Soraya and Younes Nazarian
"Our family is proud to sponsor recent RAND work in Israel to explore energy alternatives and to aid the Israeli government with long-range planning. We are heartened to see that Israeli officials are now eager for RAND to conduct more research there on a variety of subjects and that the Israeli government and others are now investing in this work. This collaboration is good for RAND, good for Israel, and good for our family."
