The Research Committee is part of the Research Authority and was established with the aim of promoting and assisting the research activities of faculty members at the College.
The Research Committee is the liaison that connects researchers to their research funding sources and guides the process of submitting research proposals throughout the evaluation process. In addition, faculty members at Kinneret Academic College are encouraged to submit research proposals to external funds, as well as manage an inter-departmental fund that provides a partial budget for reimbursement of research expenses. The committee encourages participation and lectures by faculty members at scientific conferences in Israel and around the world, while representing the College, and for this purpose allocates a fund for reimbursement for a portion of the costs of participation at conferences. The Committee maintains regular contact with academic staff at the College through its website, which publishes ongoing information about research funds and academic conferences, and on all faculty members’ research activities, and through e-mail, which serves for transferring ongoing information about relevant subjects.
