The Research Authority at Bar-Ilan University today proudly manages research grants of hundreds of millions shekels.
An analysis of the data of the relative share of the total number of projects managed by the RA each year indicates a constant increase in the number of Bar-Ilan scholars’ entitlements. We also note with satisfaction the fact that Bar-Illan’s relative part in the budget approved by the Budget Committee of the Council of Higher Education is at a new high this year to a new high of 10.63%.
The Research Authority continues to strive to enable Bar-Ilan University to obtain research grants, which will grow in the future as it has flourished so far.
In order to realize this vision, the research team is working to promote research innovation and excellence that lead researchers at Bar-Ilan.
