Palestinian German Science Bridge



PGSB was launched in 2016, following the signed agreement between the Academy and Juelich Research Center (FZJ), with support from the German Ministry of Higher Education and Research, as a joint research and education programme. The five year project provides grants for collaborative research projects in the natural, engineering, technology and health sciences, between researchers from Palestine and counterparts in any of the institutes at Juelich. It also provides outstanding Palestinian students with postgraduate (Master and Phd) scholarships at Juelich under joint supervision

Partner universities in Palestine

All Palestinian universities have partnered with the Academy to participate in the Science Bridge Program

    Joint Workshops

    The Academy organizes joint annual workshops in Ramallah, with participation from visiting scientists from the different institutes at Juelich. The workshops allow the visiting scientists to present their research, and meet prospective postgraduate students and their potential research collaborators from the various Palestinian universities.
    Conversely, Juelich organizes workshops for attendance by a delegation of Palestinian researchers, university administrators and Academy leadership. The workshops allow the Palestinian delegates to visit the research institutes at Juelich and acquaint themselves with research facilities, programs and activities.
