Pillars of Cooperation: Major Programmes and Foundations

Several foundations and large programmes are specifically dedicated to German-Israeli scientific cooperation. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research finances these foundations and programmes, but they implement their funding programmes themselves. 

Minerva is the largest and most multifaceted cooperation programme. In addition, the German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development (GIF), the German-Israeli Project Cooperation (DIP), and the Martin Buber Society Endowment Fund play a vital part in the cooperation.
