For queries or problems regarding this call for applications, please contact either Galit Mazooz-Perlmuter (LifeScience), Tal Shapira (LifeScience) or Avital Levy-Lior (Medical Device, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Energy) at Yeda.


  1. The research proposal has not been submitted to IMTI (TAMAT) in the past.
  2. The proposal was not and will not be funded by any other agency.
  3. The PI will undertake to stay in Israel for the duration of the research period and for one year thereafter (short- term trips are permitted).

AMOUNT: Up to 500,000 NIS in total. In cases of academic collaboration with another research group of a different faculty the maximum budget is 660,000 NIS

SUPPORT PERIOD: up to 15 months (extendable under special circumstances).


  • Full Proposal: 31.5 or 30.11 - Please contact Yeda regarding the submission process.


SALARIES AND WAGES: PI salaries cannot be paid from the grant. Salaries for students, post-docs, interns, technicians and staff scientists may be requested.

TOSEFET MEHKAR ALLOWANCE: This is to remind you that according to national agreements, all Academic Staff may supplement their salary by Tosafot Mehkar. The IMTI (TAMAT)-YEDA-KAMIN DOES NOT allow submission of a budget including a PI salary. Consequently, a request for approval of Tosefet Mehkar Aleph (i.e. a salary supplement which will be paid to you at the expense of the budget approved by the foundation) may NOT be submitted to this funding source. However, an approved grant from this funding source does entitle the PIs who are academic staff members to receive Tosefet Mehkar Bet (i.e. a salary supplement not at the expense of the approved budget), according to the relevant national agreements.


AUTHORIZATION: Proposals will be received by YEDA for processing only after the financial statement has been checked and approved by the projects section of the Finance Department and the Internal Form submitted.

RIGHTS LIMITATION: Please note the following excerpt taken from a letter to scientists in the Institute from the President, dated 22.1.94: "Scientists are solely responsible for evaluating all considerations pertaining to a proposed research program when submitting applications to funding bodies with which the Institute has signed standard contracts in the past. In case of doubt, all scientists are advised to solicit advise from representatives of 'Yeda' or the Vice-President for Technology Transfer".
