Call for Proposals 2017 Tel Aviv University – Freie Universität Berlin Joint Research Workshops
With the goal of facilitating research cooperation, Freie Universität Berlin and Tel Aviv University have established a joint funding scheme to support annual joint research workshops.
FUB-TAU joint research workshops allow researchers to identify complementary research strengths and facilitate the use of synergies in future research projects. The workshops should have a clearly defined research focus and serve as a catalyst for the development of new research projects. The workshop format and duration is not pre-defined. The workshops can be held in Berlin or in Tel Aviv; participants should include both senior and junior researchers. Researchers can participate in more than one workshop provided that the workshops are not submitted in the same cycle.
The scientific motivation for holding the workshop should be clearly explained, including how the involved FUB and TAU institutes or departments can profit long term from this cooperation and what synergies will arise. Inclusion of German non-university research institutions such as Max Planck Institutes, Helmholtz Centers, and others, is encouraged, however, the additional costs must be covered by these partners themselves. The call is not limited to a specific academic field, the workshops can be either focused on one discipline or be of interdisciplinary character.
