Cooperation between Tel Aviv University and Humboldt-Universität on Biological and Soft Matter Physics

IRIS Adlershof and the IRI for the Life Sciences wish to intensify their cooperation with the Tel Aviv University (TAU) in the field of biological and soft matter physics. Therefore, they call for proposals to be funded in a bilateral funding scheme. Funding is available for bilateral collaborative research projects comprising researchers or research teams from the two participating universities. The main goal of the program is to support the ongoing and stimulate new collaborations between the research groups of the two Universities. Joint project proposals by scientists from TAU and HU may be submitted until December 15th 2013.


Funding initiative "Innovative SMEs: Photonics / Optical Technologies" in the framework of the programme "Photonics Research Germany"

With this funding initiative, the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) aims to strengthen the innovation potential of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and to make research funding within the program "Photonics Research Germany" more attractive, especially for SMEs applying for first-time.
For this purpose, the BMBF has simplified the application and approval process, sped up the consultancy services for SMEs, and redesigned the funding initiative thematically less restricted.
Applications of universities and and extra-faculty institutes are eligible in the framework of joint research projects.
The assessment dates for project outlines are 15 April and 15 October every year.
