- Negotiating and authorizing the contractual relationship with funding sources.

Sources of approved funding for research grants were geographically distributed between: Israel (over $25 million), Europe (nearly $30 million), the USA (nearly $10 million) and Bi-national and International sources (over $3 million).
The top sources providing external research grant support for research were the European Union Framework Programme, the Israel Science Foundation, research programs originating with the German government, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as research support programs of the Israel Ministry for Science and Technology.
