Nanotechnology R&D to get USD 230M

Israeli government announces it will strengthen funding in nanoscience, nanotechnology research centers

The Israeli government announced that it will strengthen funding in nanoscience and nanotechnology research centers.


The government is set to finance a third of funds worth USD 82 million over the next 5 years.


The new financing uses a triangle model, where both the universities and the government match all private donations.


This program makes nanotechnology one of Israel's most heavily invested in R&D fields in Israel.


Research institutions participating in the program are Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Weizmann Institute of Science.


The funding will be invested into three channels: Nanotechnology education, applied research and derived developments by companies.
