The Gentner Symposia shall bring together Israeli scientists with colleagues from Germany and from other countries. They shall enable the scientific discourse, exchange of ideas, and new interactions in a given field of research. Not yet established but promising young scientists (PhD students, post docs) shall have the opportunity to get in contact with senior scientists during these symposia. Roughly 50% of the participants should belong to the group of not yet established scientists.
Gentner Symposia are funded with up to EUR 30,000. The expenses for travel, accommodation, boarding and participation for Israeli and German participants must be covered from the budget provided by Minerva. Senior scientists (lecturers) may also receive financial support, however no honoraria.
The Minerva Fellowship Committee reviews proposals.
The closing date in 2018 for applications for Minerva-Gentner Symposia in 2020 is July 16.
