A decision has been adopted on providing domestic funding to projects implemented in Hungarian–Israeli cooperation in the framework of international science and technology (S&T) cooperation calls. The calls financed from the National Development, Research and Innovation Fund promote the mobility of participants of research projects implemented in bilateral S&T cooperation in the given relation and increasingly facilitate larger project-based cooperation.
To the 2018-2.1.16-TÉT-IL call 4 proposals were submitted by the deadline, with funding request of approx. HUF 275 million. Out of them 3 were found to be in line with the formal requirements and suitable for qualitative assessment. The proposals were assessed and ranked by a designated expert group. On motion of the bilateral joint committee, the Innovation Board recommended one proposal to the President of the NRDI Office for funding.
Accordingly, one project submitted by a university-industry consortium receives over HUF 69 million in non-refundable funding from the NRDI Fund.
