Israel’s Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Education launched programs designed to boost research cooperation with India and China, by attracting researchers and students from those two countries to Israel’s research institutions. Scholarships will be awarded to hundreds of students and researchers from

China and India as part of an overall budgetary allocation of up to some 44 million shekels ($11.6 mln) annually.
 
The first program aims to strengthen research ties with India and China by attracting post-doctorate students, exposing them to research capabilities in Israel and creating bonds with leading Israeli researchers. This program will be put into effect both in the universities and in the Volcani Institute of Agricultural

Research. The second program is designed to draw hundreds of outstanding students to study in universities in Israel and integrate them into extra-academic programs enabling them to familiarize themselves with the country.
