The Bezalel Academy after more than hundred years of activity relays great importance to theoretic and applicable research in the fields of design arts and architecture. Bezalel acts as a cultural center where praxis and theory truly interact, and where the theory of art praxis is being built. An Art Academy in the twenty-first century is tested not only through the success of its alumni in the arts field, but through its contribution to research. Teaching and research today are two mainstays of the academic education in the arts field, where they reciprocate, inseparable in their coexistence. Bezalel works to create a research activity frame for both its lecturers and students and encourages them to be involved in the research, to participate in international groups and to publish the results of their work in the local and international professional community.
