The French-Israeli High Council for Science and Technology is providing funding for binational research projects for two years. Every year, two call for proposals are launched on two different research themes.
French and Israeli scientists team up to submit a research project. If the project is selected, the Israeli side gets approximately 40,000 US$/ year from the Israel Ministry of Science and the French side gets 40,000€/ year from the French government.
The calls for proposals 2013 are not open yet.
The calls for proposals 2012 on “Experimental Marine Biology: Aquaculture, Pathogens and Pollution” and “Nanotechnology: Innovative Functional Nano-Materials” are now closed.
The High Council for Science and Technology Cooperation between France and Israel was created as a result of the recommendations of the High Level Group established by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of both countries in 2003.
The High Council is co-chaired by Jules Hoffmann, Nobel Prize of Medecine 2011, and David Harari, Israel Prize. The aim of the High Council is to promote French and Israeli scientific and technological cooperation, to define priorities and to coordinate programs, joint projects and other forms of cooperation. The High Council shall conduct its activities in accordance with the respective research policies of each country and within their budgetary framework for scientific and technological cooperation.
The first meeting of the High Council for Scientific and Technological Cooperation was held in Jerusalem on April 19, 2004.
