The Embassy is looking to fund one or two projects within an overall budget of up to 350,000 ILS to enable the delivery of small-scale, one-off or exploratory activities in support of the following priority areas, solely in relation to COVID-19:
- Development of vaccine, new drugs and therapeutics
- Development of better and more effective testing
- Economic recovery and response
- Support to vulnerable or disadvantaged communities within Israel
Proposals will be accepted from think tanks, commercial organisations, civil society and government entities. The project will run from end-June 2020 – March 2021, with an emphasis on more urgent response work. Only projects directly related to COVID-19 will be considered.
