German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development (GIF)
Grants to Israel and Germany early-career researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for sustainability-related projects. The purpose of this program is to encourage young scientists to establish professional relationships with their counterparts in Israel and Germany.
The German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development (GIF) was established by an agreement between the Ministers of Science of the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Israel, as an additional instrument complementing the continuous fruitful ties in scientific and technological cooperation between the two countries.
The GIF Young Scientists’ Program aims to encourage young scientists and help them establish first contacts with potential counterparts in Israel or Germany. The program will give eligible scientists an opportunity to present themselves and their research activities in the other country.
The first call in the new Young Scientists' Program will focus on sustainability-related projects in all areas of research. Specific research questions could include renewable energies, climate research, agriculture, water and waste management; perhaps also civil construction, artificial intelligence, and all the areas that make life on earth more sustainable. GIF also invites projects that examine the notion of sustainability in history and modern society, cultural approaches to, and the diversity of notions in the discourse on sustainability. This also includes implications of the Covid-19 pandemic.
