About the research grant management department

The Research Authority at Reichman University was established in 2007 in order to advance, guide and regulate research at Reichman University. Its purpose is to encourage and support research activity among Reichman University’s faculty and to handle the administrative side of any research conducted within its framework. The Research Authority accompanies the researchers throughout the research process, from submitting the research proposal to sending the financial and scientific reports to the funding body.

Its key functions are:


  • Collecting information on foundations that support research in Israel and abroad and disseminating it to researchers.
  • Developing new sources of funding for research.
  • Helping researchers submit research proposals to foundations in Israel and abroad.
  • Handling communications with regards to contracts with research foundations, including negotiation of the agreement.
  • Opening research budgets for studies whose sources come from external research funds in Israel and abroad, donations, internal sources and reimbursement budgets.
  • Managing research budgets, including the oversight of the utilization of the budget, in accordance with Reichman University’s regulations and those of the research foundations.
  • Preparing financial reports for the foundations in coordination with the researchers.
  • Supervising scientific reports submitted by researchers to the foundations by the required dates.
  • Submitting reports on research activities at Reichman University for internal officials and external stakeholders (the CHE, donors, foundations).
  • Representing Reichman University in Israel and abroad to promote research at the university (research foundations, authorities, research partners).
