The purpose of this DSRC@BGU and HIDA Summer Exchange is to bring together data science talent from both institutions to work together on predefined research projects. These projects should advance the participant's skillset in the application and, or research or, information and data science methods. Principal investigators (PI) shall welcome the other institution's participants in their labs and to their teams, and ensure that they have the necessary support and resources to succeed in their projects. The participating researchers shall share credit for the results of the project. This hands-on experience at each other's institutions shall serve as the foundation for ongoing scientific collaboration between Helmholtz centers and BGU.

​The exchange program is open to Bachelor and Master students, as well as to doctoral researchers and postdocs at BGU. At Helmholtz, the program is open to doctoral researchers and postdocs.
