Annual budget in total is approx.4,000,000 INS, Supporting around 60 research projects.

Procedures

The research senior steering committee which govern the Dairy Board Research grants, issue a call for proposals emphasizing certain topics, annually.

Most of the research proposals are initiated by the scientists.

Nevertheless, occasionally some are initiated by the research senior steering committee.

Senior Research Steering Committee

Comprised of 11 members representing the dairy milk producers (3) milk industry (2) scientists (3) governmental extension services (2) and Israel dairy Board (2).
