The Collaborative Research Grant program fosters international research broadly. Applicants from all schools and disciplines are encouraged to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable projects built around collaborative research linking faculty from the University of Bonn and HUJI. The research may take place in Germany and/or Israel as long as it is done collaboratively. Scientists from other countries may participate in the project but will not receive funding. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to or continue long-term collaborations, institutional and research relations, and when applicable, generate publications, exhibitions, and/or external funding for ongoing collaboration.
In 2022, up to two applications will be funded (each with two principal investigators: one from the University of Bonn and one from HUJI) with a project starting date of January 1, 2023. Each application will receive up to EUR10,000 from their respective institution, for a total of up to EUR20,000. Applications with a smaller budget are also encouraged. These funds must be used for research (broadly defined) and follow the budget guidelines below.

Application Eligibility
Principal investigators on a project must be regular, continuing full-time faculty at HUJI. Principal investigators at University of Bonn must have completed a doctorate and be able to show proof of their employment at least until the end of the collaborative research project. Questions about eligibility should be directed to the respective institution.
Mutual external collaborators (including researchers from other universities internationally, or those working in non-academic contexts such as industry or government) cannot lead an application but can be involved in the proposed activities at their own expense, where the benefit of their involvement to the collaboration is justified in the proposal.
