Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Israel researchers working at an eligible institution of higher education to establish scientific research centers. Requests will be accepted from across the science disciplines and approaches may be interdisciplinary. Funded programs will carry out research on the topic of Intelligence in cooperation with German partners, training young scientists, bridging gaps, and building networks in the respective field of research with Israeli partners.

Minerva is seeking exciting topics for new centers which can be interdisciplinary in their approach. Proposals addressing the broad topic of “Intelligence” are welcome from all areas of science. The topic can be approached from different aspects.

Minerva Centers deal with topics that are innovative and of special interest to the science community in Israel. Centers will involve excellent researchers regardless of their institutional affiliation.

A Minerva Center is designed as a long-term effort of a number of scientists to concentrate on a certain field of research. A center may also involve scientists from other than the host university, such as to create an inter-university community in the field.

A Minerva Center ideally is devoted to an emerging research field which is not yet well established in Israel and which does not yet attract grants and donations.
