Joint Seed Funding - The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

With the goal of facilitating cooperation in the framework of a strategic partnership, Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) have established a joint seed money funding scheme. The funding shall enable FUB and HUJI faculty and researchers to identify complementary strengths, facilitate the use of synergies, and promote the development of outstanding future research projects.

  • Intensive research workshops
  • Short term research stays (for young as well as established researchers)
  • Research-oriented teaching / short intensive graduate seminars
  • Mobility for the preparation of joint research proposals

• Clearly formulated plan and goals of the activity

• Information on envisaged synergies

• Level of concreteness of future joint research, incl. timeframe and information on funding programs and steps for developing a joint proposal
