Grants to USA and Israel scientists affiliated with nonprofit organizations, including IHEs, government research institutions, and hospitals for collaborative scientific research projects related to the nervous system. Funding is intended to support projects that focus on computational neuroscience.
Funding is intended to support collaborative activities that will advance the understanding of nervous system structure and function, mechanisms underlying nervous system disorders, and computational strategies used by the nervous system.
Two classes of proposals will be considered in response to this solicitation:
A broad range of topics and approaches is welcome under this solicitation. For a list of examples, see the NSF solicitation link in Pre-Application Information, below.
The BSF was established to enhance the cooperation in research between American and Israeli researchers. The BSF believes that in order to advance the cooperation and to advance the joint research it is important for the scientists to meet in person. Therefore, the BSF will allocate money for travel of an investigator, or a member of the research team, to the other country; that is, travel funds will be provided to allow investigators to work together at one of their institutions. In order for the meeting to be supported by the BSF it must be substantial. Only meetings of at least two full days, not including weekends and holidays, will be supported. For additional information on expenses, see page 15 of the Regulations, in Attached Files, below.
GrantWatch ID#: 176064
The award amount for the Israeli applicant is capped at a maximum of $80,000 per year for experimental programs and up to $55,000 per year for theoretical or computer-based research, subject to the availability of funds. If more than a single Israeli group is involved in the research, then the budget may be increased by up to 50%.
The duration of the grant to the Israeli will be the same as that of the NSF grant to the American PI (in most cases 3 years, but occasionally up to 5 years).
