The Minerva-Programs

For almost fifty years, The Minerva Stiftung has been playing a significant role in supporting the scientific cooperation and dialogue between Germany and Israel. Funding Research projects of Israeli scientists and furthering outstanding research centers in Israeli universities and the Weizmann Institute are the central tasks of Minerva. Recently, Minerva strengthened its own profile and is now focusing even more on furthering competition for establishing research centers and awarding grants, as well as on thorough regular evaluation in all programs. The Minerva Programs are brought to German and Israeli scientists and to a broader section of the interested general public in order to deepen and expand existing cooperative efforts.

  • The Minerva Programs support PIs of Israeli institutions by the Minerva Centers Program. These Centers receive a budget of up to 150000 as seed money to strengthen a certain research field in Israel and stimulate the cooperation with German partners and the training of the young.
  • Junior researchers of both sides can apply to the Minerva fellowships program for a support of up to 2 years and the Minerva short-term research grants program for a support for up to3 months.
  • Minerva offers support for organizing Minerva Schools and Minerva Gentner Symposia, both explorative instruments which pave the way for future cooperation.
  • Furthermore, Minerva has a yearly call for awarding the ARCHES prize for younger cooperation partners.
All of these programs are meant to build bridges between the two countries and facilitate the exchange of ideas.
