Manchester-Tel Aviv University joint research funds

The University of Manchester and Tel Aviv University have established a joint fund to support and foster international collaborative partnerships between the universities.

The fund is designed to encourage academic applicants from any discipline to submit funding applications for innovative and sustainable programmes built around collaborative research, which can include learning and teaching initiatives. The expectation is that these initial projects will lead to long-term academic relations and generate significant external funding for ongoing collaboration in the future.

There are currently no open calls.
