Grants to Israel and International institutions of higher education and research institutes in eligible regions to conduct collaborative water related research studies. Funding is intended to support projects that propose solutions to issues in Israel, its neighboring areas, or Germany. Eligible project areas include water technology to reduce the CO2 footprint of the water sector, economical optimization in the water sector, and water technology to adapt to major impacts of climate change.
Within the framework of the German-Israeli cooperation in Water Technology Research, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Israeli Ministry of Science, Technology and Space (MOST) invite proposals for bilateral R&D projects. The research should be multidisciplinary and be applicable to the needs of the water sector. In addition to scientific partners, projects should preferably include industrial partners as well as related stakeholders.
Qualifying scientific applicants in this framework may receive R&D grants, respectively, from BMBF and MOST according to the applicable national funding procedures and regulations.
The objectives of the German-Israeli Water Technology Cooperation Program are as follows:
Each submitted research proposal needs to indicate how it addresses the above mentioned objectives of the German-Israeli Water Technology Cooperation. In particular, the proposals need to specify the interaction between German and Israeli research groups (e.g. using a block diagram or PERT network diagram) and how integration will be managed and maintained during the project (e.g. governance structure, joint workshops).
Priority will be given to projects based on novel ideas and potential industrial applicability. It is recommended that working groups include academic partners, industrial partners and end users.

GrantWatch ID#: 127416
Out of the total budget, typically 3-5 projects will be funded.
The proposed project must be prepared and carried out jointly by the Israeli and the German project partners. For this purpose, BMBF and MOST will consider providing a grant that covers the travel expenses for one short visit of one of the potential research partners to either Israel or Germany, for the purpose of preparing the joint proposal. Such grants will not exceed 1,500 Euro.
It is the intention of the parties issuing this call to fund research proposals selected hereunder for the three‐year duration of the project. However MOST funding must be approved on an annual basis, with the funding for the second and third years to be approved in accordance with the provisions of the research contract. The parties to this call reserve the right not to fund a second or third year of work for scientific‐professional, administrative or budgetary reasons.
