Proposals are invited from Indian-Israeli teams for joint research on advanced materials for next-generation solar energy utilization and energy storage.
Israel would provide financial support of up to 400,000 NIS (Rs 81 lakh) for each approved research proposal. The Indian side would fund all the approved science and technology activities during the project period.
The expected start date for the approved projects is June 2020. Project completion period is two years.
As per the RfP, the Indian and Israeli research teams and their institutions are required to enter into agreements regarding intellectual property rights prior to the start of collaborative activities.

“Renewable energy research is required for finding new, efficient, environment-friendly and sustainable energy sources to replace fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas. Advancement in this field will reduce pollution, greenhouse effect and climate changes”—read the call for proposals published by The Department of Science & Technology, Government of India.
Mode of cooperation
Cooperation between Indian and Israeli researchers may take the form of joint research project activities where interdependent subprojects of a single project are conducted in the Indian and the Israeli laboratories. Or, it could be for complementary methodological approaches to a common problem; joint use of research facilities, materials, equipment and/or services by cooperating scientists; or joint planning of research and evaluation of results.
