Ministry of Science and Technology

The Ministry of Science and Technology prioritizes scientific research solely on a professional basis. The ministry is in charge of all the budgets aimed at developing scientific & technological infrastructure, and is able to mobilize funds within government R&D.
There are 3 sections of Research and Development:

  • Academic Research
  • Industrial Research
  • Government Research

The Ministry of Science and Technology supports the scientific community in Israel by awarding scholarships, in order to develop Israel's scientific manpower reserves. The Ministry attributes great importance to the nurturing of the research manpower, which is one of the most important components of the Infrastructure Program. This is manifested by the scholarships granted to research students, and post-doctorate students.

Over the last decade, the Ministry has initiated a special program for the support of specific sectors of the Israeli society:

  • A scholarship program for Arab, Druse and Circassian researchers studying for doctorate and post-doctorate degrees.
  • A scholarship program for women researchers studying for their first degree in science and technology.

Title of the programme: no title
Type of the programme: thematic call for proposals
