Minerva Schools - Grant information
Minerva Schools are intended to bring together young Israeli and German scientists through conferences and workshops. The Schools are orientated particularly towards PhD-students and post-doctoral researchers and aim at enabling first contacts, scientific exchange as well as interaction with select senior scientists. In this sense, the funding provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is seed money to establish new collaborative efforts.
Minerva Schools may be organized in all areas of research.
The venue may be in either Germany or Israel. In both countries, the participants should come from different institutions. In addition to the Israeli and German participants, also scientists from other countries can be included in the program.
Minerva Schools are funded with up to EUR 25,500.
Proposals are reviewed by the Minerva Fellowship Committee.
