Organizations Sponsoring Collaborative Research with Israeli Institutions

U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF)

Partner country: United States

The BSF research grant program awards grants to joint researches by U.S. and Israeli researchers for both the creation of quality research and the act of collaboration itself by nationals from both countries. While the scope of the program is likely outside of “seed funding” range, its extent crosses a great number of scientific fields, and as such is still a significant contender for a primary organization to interface with when it comes to Joint Collaboration.


British Council in Israel

Partner country: United Kingdom

Multiple programs offered for fostering bilateral relations and connecting British and Israeli researchers and further reinforced by bodies such as the UK-Israel Science Council launched for the mutual promotion of both countries as scientific superpowers. The scope of some programs is more humble and focuses bilateral collaboration, making them particularly lucrative for the sake of Joint Collaboration to be promoted by TAU. The British Council additionally sponsors scholarships for Israeli students of various fields and backgrounds.


GIF – The German Israeli Foundation

Partner country: Germany

GIF promotes first and foremost the scientific ties between Germany and Israel, as an organization dedicated to joint collaboration between the countries in all steps of the research process. The programs are within the scope of “seed funding” with the intent of promoting young researchers and early career scientists, while also allowing greater funding and flexibility for veteran researchers.


DAAD – German Academic Exchange Service

Partner country: Germany

DAAD has an information center in Israel and it is limited in scope to promoting opportunities for Israeli students and researchers to study in Germany
