UMD Joint Research Workshops are a new funding model intended to deepen and broaden UMD’s research collaborations with key international partner universities. JRWs help scholars at UMD and partner institutions identify complementary research strengths and explore potential collaborations.

UMD-Tel Aviv University Joint Research Workshop Program

Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the University of Maryland (UMD) announce a fourth round in their program to support joint research collaboration.

TAU-UMD Joint Research Workshops are intended to help scholars at both institutions to identify complementary research strengths and explore potential collaborations, for which they can then seek significant external funding from entities such as the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF), the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, the US National Science Foundation, et al. 

This call will support two Joint Research Workshops to be held in 2017.  Workshops are not limited to a specific academic field. Interdisciplinary projects are especially encouraged.

TAU and UMD will each contribute up to $7,500 per funded Joint Research Workshop (total of $15,000/project) for a maximum duration of 12 months.

Proposals should be submitted jointly, by at least one tenured or tenure-track faculty from each institution. Workshop proposals should involve several TAU and UMD scholars, as well as post-doctoral fellows and/or graduate students. The workshop format and duration are flexible, to be determined by the proposers. Workshops can be held in Tel Aviv or College Park. Projected outcomes should include at least one significant proposal to an external funder. Participants should include both junior and senior scholars.
