Research Authority Staff

The Research Authority is headed by Prof. Dafna Schwartz. The Research Authority's staff is divided into two departments: The first is the pre-funding department, responsible for gathering information about foundations that support research in Israel and abroad and disseminating it to researchers, as well as helping researchers submit research proposals. The second department monitors and controls the management of research grants and is responsible for budgets for research whose funding comes from external sources in Israel and abroad, donations, and more, as well as supervision of the financial and scientific reports to the funding bodies.
