Call for proposals

The Minerva-Gentner Symposium is a format to bring together Israeli scientists with colleagues from Germany through conferences, workshops etc. German-Israeli Minerva-Gentner Symposia are intended to enable scientific discourse, exchange of ideas and new interactions in a given field of research. Furthermore, the Symposia should initiate new collaborative efforts in fields that are highly innovative and not yet in the focus of German-Israeli cooperation.

Minerva-Gentner Symposia may be conducted in all areas of research. A typical Minerva-Gentner Symposium has about 25-50 participants.

The invited scientists should come from various institutions in Germany and Israel. In addition to the Israeli and German participants, also scientists from other countries can be included in the program. The venue of the Symposium may be either in Germany or Israel.

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.

A Minerva-Gentner Symposium can be funded with up to EUR 30,000 by the Minerva Stiftung.

The deadline for submitting proposals is July 15, 2020. More information on how to apply can be found here https://www.minerva.mpg.de/19287/gentner-symposia.
