The FACT center brings together researchers from across the spectrum of cryptographic theory, aiming to reduce the gap between the theoretical foundations and practical applications of cryptography.
The center is composed of several permanent members along with a group of visiting fellows, scholars and graduate students. The center is hosted by the IDC Herzliya, located about 8km north of Tel-Aviv.
The project is generously funded by the European Research Council (ERC). It is also partially funded by the Israeli Science Foundation (ISF) and the US-Israel Binational Science Foundations (BSF).
