Ministry of Health (MOH)

Division / Department: Chief Scientist Office (CSO)

Country: Israel

The Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH) through its Medical Research Administration and the Medical Research Fund, is the key organisation in Israel for managing and funding of research dedicated to bio-medical, medical and health-related research. Chief Scientist’s office (CSO) is the only governmental direct source of support for biomedical research.
Our strategic approach is the support of investigator-initiated research projects performed in universities, research institutes and hospitals.
Grant requests sent in response to public Calls for Applications issued by the Research Fund, are peer-reviewed in various research disciplines review committees (Study Sections). Funding of feasibility studies and fellowships to Physicians-Researchers is also available.
CSO-MOH is also mandated to regulate animal experimentation, genetic human experimentation and it also regulates the homeland security aspects of biomedical research in Israel.
The CSO-MOH is a partner organisation in several ERA-NET projects: ERA-Age and ERA-Age-2, ERA-SAGE, E-Rare, ERA-PathoGenoMics, CoCanCPG, ERA-IB, EuroNanoMed, and ERANeuron.


The SIINN ERA-NET is funded under the ERA-NET scheme of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission, Research Directorate- General, Grant Agreement No. 265799
