Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation
In January 2009, the Academy signed an agreement with the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The agreement established the German-Israeli Frontiers of the Humanities (GISFOH) program
: a series of annual joint science conferences, whose venue alternates between the two countries, with the participation of fifty young scholars of the humanities and social sciences from both countries.
The purpose of the conference series is to encourage international exchanges of interdisciplinary ideas and to provide scholars with opportunities for connection, cross-fertilization and collaboration.
The conference series is led by Academy Member Prof. Margalit Finkelberg.
