Funding and Intermediary Organisations

The German funding and intermediary organisations contribute significantly to the cooperation with Israel due to extensive activities. The German Research Foundation (DFG) mainly funds research projects with German-Israeli participation, while the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) focus on individual funding.
