Like all universities, the two main objectives of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev are research and teaching.
Within this mandate, the University strives to solicit resources to support its research activities
from foundations, funding agencies, and grant organizations both in Israel and abroad.
The University solicits and administers these funds through its Research & Development Authority,
which is an integral part of the University management and engages in the following activities:
Searching for sources of research funds
Linking researchers with funding sources
Assisting and supporting researchers in project development
Liaison with prospective funding organizations prior to and throughout the proposal submission and evaluation process
Grant and contract negotiations with funding agencies
Post-award administration of grants and contracts received by University researchers
Preparation and submission of financial reports and invoices; monitoring the submission of scientific and technical reports by researchers
Monitoring compliance with funding agency and government standards
