Grants to USA and Israel scientists affiliated with nonprofit research organizations to hold workshops that identify new areas of agricultural sciences research. Workshops are intended to promote collaboration between sciences from both countries. All proposals must be submitted jointly by at least one US and one Israel scientist.
Workshop proposals will be considered based on three broad areas:
Subject & Proposal Quality:
-Scientific justification for and potential agricultural benefits of the workshop, the potential participants and invited participants who would make significant contributions to the deliberations and outcome, the assignment of topics to specific participants.
-Relevance to important agricultural problems.
-Range of expertise and diversity of opinion in the field to be addressed.
-Inclusion of students and early career scientists and the criteria for the selection of such participants.
-Uniqueness of the topic. Justify that the topic is not adequately addressed by other conferences and symposia.
Organization of the Workshop Plan
-The balance between presentations and interactive participation.
-Workshop structure: session topics, modes of presentation and discussion.
