Young Scientists Exchange Program (YSEP)


In order to encourage young scientists to engage themselves in the Water Technology Research Program in the framework of the German-Israeli Cooperation, BMBF and MOST have initiated a young scientists exchange program in 1999.

Art der Förderung

  • accommodation and living expenses (as lump sums):
    • 1.690 EURO for 1st month *)
    • 1.380 EURO for 2nd - 6th month
    • 46 EURO for additional days as lump sums
  • travel, extraordinary expenses: only on account

*) The increased lump sum for the first month does include the costs for additional insurances (health, accident, luggage, private liability) that shall be contracted by the candidates for the period of their stay abroad according to the agreement.


The program is open to Israeli and German diploma/M.Sc. students, post graduates, doctoral degree students, and post doctorates candidates who wish to spend a training period in Israel or Germany for up to 6 month, but not less than 1 month. Candidates are considered as “Young Scientist” if no more than 3 years have passed since receiving the PhD. Funding will be provided to cover all necessary expenses of the applicant's visit abroad (travel, accommodation, living expenses, extraordinary work expenses). In each case (Israeli scientist visiting Germany / German scientist visiting Israel) the grant will be transferred to the German cooperating institution. Therefore, the German institution has to direct the joint application to the Water Technology Project Agency of BMBF.

A work report has to be submitted latest by 2 month after the end of the exchange period.
