Fellowships and cooperation grants

The Minerva Stiftung offers a wide range of fellowships and research grants for german-israeli cooperations.

Since 1973, over 2,000 German and Israeli scientists have been able to spend several months in the other country. For 50 years, this has not only promoted German-Israeli cooperation in cutting-edge research, but also maintained the friendship between the two countries, an essential asset, especially against the backdrop of their shared tragic history.  
The Minerva Fellowship Committe is the scientific board responsible for the selection of the Minerva Fellows (long term and short term) as well as for the Minerva Schools, the Gentner Symposia and the ARCHES award. Its members are German and Israeli professors and scientists from all fields and subjects.  
The Minerva Fellowship Programme (funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research) enables Israeli and German scientists to complete a research residency at institutions in the respective other country.  
The Minerva-Gentner Symposium is a format to bring together Israeli scientists with colleagues from Germany and other countries through conferences, workshops etc.
The format is named after the physicist and former director of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Wolfgang Gentner, who was a member of the first German scientific delegation to Israel in 1959 and later member of the board of the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot.
