The U.S. Binational Science Foundation is funding short scientific trips by young American or Israeli scientists to the other country.
BSF is happy to announce the expected expansion of the joint funding agreement with the NSF division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) to include all of their core programs. Interested U.S. and Israeli investigators are encouraged to start looking for collaborators from the other country. NSF deadline for most of CBET programs is Monday, October 22, 2018, in the NSF. However, please note that some CBET core programs are with no deadline and applications can be submitted throughout the year (formal announcement by the NSF about these new programs is expected in the spring).
