The British Embassy in Tel Aviv has said it will release up to £80,000 to fund urgent Covid-19 response work in Israel.

The UK mission announced its intention to finance “scientific, innovative, economic or social projects” solely in relation to the coronavirus, adding that it was “looking to fund one or two small-scale, one-off or exploratory activities”.

Examples of potential beneficiaries include those developing vaccines, new drugs, therapeutics or testing, as well as projects focusing on economic recovery or supporting vulnerable or disadvantaged communities within Israel.

“Proposals will be accepted from think tanks, commercial organisations, civil society, academic institutions and government entities,” said the Embassy, adding that the funding would run from June until March next year.
