About the Event

TheBavaria-Israel Symposium aims to extend the research network and collaboration between Bavarian and Israeli researchers by implementing new cooperation projects and exploiting new funding opportunities. The Symposium raises questions and topics, which are of high relevance for both the Bavarian and Israeli academia, industry and economy, and where both ecosystems complement each other. 

The “Bavaria-Israel Symposium” aims to bring together key academic experts in selected focus areas from Bavaria and Israel and help them exploit new funding opportunities and initiate innovative fields of collaboration. The symposium particularly invites researchers and entrepreneurs who are interested in participating in international research collaboration. The symposium is led by experts from ISERD (Israel-Europe Research & Innovation Directorate) and BayFOR (Bavarian Research Alliance) who offer a deep insight into the H2020-application process and will support applicants throughout the period leading up to the submission date.  

Topic: Energy
“Energy” is a strategic and future oriented topic for both Europe and Israel. The 4rd “Bavaria-Israel Symposium” introduces its participants to different calls from the H2020 framework program as well as to other bilateral funding opportunities. Participants are welcome to present additional calls from the field of energy during the symposium!

The Symposium is open to researchers from Bavarian and Israeli universities, research institutes and economic representatives (startups, SMEs, industry), who seek for bilateral or international research collaborations. Participants are asked to register in advance to the symposium and to send a short summary of their profile and research interests to the organizers. Candidates, who already started to build a consortium, are especially welcome to attend the workshop.
