The areas of cooperation combine the strengths of the two science nations. They reflect global challenges and rely on key technologies for a modern, liveable society.
Environmental research is one of the focus areas of cooperation. Bilateral cooperation in water technology was established as early as 1974 and laid an important cornerstone in this field. Another central pillar is cooperation in marine and geosciences, which was established in 1977. More and more, environmental research cooperation is shaped by global challenges such as climate change.
Key enabling technologies also play a central part in the two countries’ cooperation. This currently includes their cooperation on applied nanotechnology, based on an intergovernmental agreement signed in 2016, and on quantum technology, which involves the 2023 bilateral Quantum Future Academy, an event aimed primarily at young scientists.
Die Umweltforschung gehört zu einem der wichtigsten Themenfelder der deutsch-israelischen Kooperation. Die interministerielle Zusammenarbeit ist sehr vielschichtig und begann bereits in den 1970er Jahren. Mehr und mehr ist sie geprägt durch die globalen Herausforderungen, insbesondere den Klimawandel.
Germany and Israel cooperate in various fields in the so-called key enabling technologies. Frontier technologies (such as artificial intelligence and quantum technologies) are also of increasing economic interest for bilateral exchange. Cooperation takes place at both bilateral and multilateral level.
German-Israeli cooperation in the life sciences can look back on almost 50 years of successful joint projects. Cooperation in cancer research (DKFZ) is of great importance. Israel is an important cooperation partner for the Helmholtz Association’s other centres in the field of health research, including artificial intelligence. Cooperation is increasingly taking place in transnational initiatives, for example in ERA networks.
German and Israeli partners cooperate closely in the field of social sciences and humanities research. The cooperation portfolio is extensive. Both sides are also very interested in studying the history, culture and society of the other country.
The German-Israeli Programme for Cooperation in Vocational Education and Training is a cooperation between the Israeli MOLSA and the German BMBF which has been ongoing since 1969. In 2011, an intergovernmental agreement was concluded on bilateral cooperation in the field of vocational education and training. Since 2020, the German side of the programme has been implemented by GOVET on behalf of the BMBF.
