The new nanotech collaboration is slated to offer up to two research grants a year to support pilot projects that bear unique commercial potential.
A new collaborative venture between Northwestern University (NU), US and Tel Aviv University (TAU), Israel brings together researchers and students in the field of nanotechnology through joint research and development projects, student exchange programs and research grants.
The new nanotech collaboration is slated to offer up to two research grants a year to support pilot projects that bear unique commercial potential. TAU's Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Northwestern's International Institute for Nanotechnology will together select the winning projects, which will receive funding to cover the costs involved with completing proof of concept.
Under the new partnership, two researchers from each university will receive post-doctoral fellowships supporting two years of research at the partner institution. The new joint Northwestern-TAU venture also includes a student exchange program, which will allow three graduate students from each institution to study at the partner university and attend an annual nanotechnology workshop and international conference on cutting-edge breakthroughs in the field.
