Decía Santiago Ramón y Cajal que "las ideas no duran mucho. Hay que hacer algo con ellas".

Es por ello que una de las más importantes innovaciones, que pretende aportar esta Cátedra Universitaria España Israel al mundo académico, en particular, y a la propia sociedad en general es, sin duda alguna, lo que hemos venido a denominar "Laboratorio de Ideas".

Entendemos, por ello, que desde este área de trabajo se deberán recoger y promocionar las distintas iniciativas científicas que, tanto los miembros de los Comités de Honor y Científicos de esta Cátedra Universitaria como terceras personas e instituciones interesadas, pretendan desarrollar en beneficio de todos.

Incialmente, los campos de actuación vienen a coincidir con las distintas secretarías creadas en el seno de la Cátedra Universitaria España-Israel:

- El Mediterráneo

- Cultura y Literatura

- América y Oceanía

- Europa y Oriente

- Historia en general

La puesta en marcha de las mismas se hará conjuntando las aportaciones públicas, a través de proyectos de investigación nacionales e internacionales, así como mediante aportaciones privadas.
