The Minna-James-Heineman-Stiftung

Established by Dannie Heineman in 1951, the Minna-James-Heineman-Stiftung supports research projects that promote scientific progress and foster international cooperation especially between Israel and Germany.

The foundation finances life sciences research projects carried out by partnerships between the Max Planck Society, the Weizmann Institute of Science, and Heineman Medical Research (U.S.A.), issues two bi-annual awards for young scientists and backs several grants and small projects in the Hanover region (Germany), where it was founded.

Owning to its Israel expertise, the Minerva Stiftung, as a subsidiary of the Max Planck Society, functions as the project executing organisation for the project grants for young scientists in biological and biomedical research and the James Heineman Research Award.
