The Call for travel grants to visit Taiwanese research institutions on 2023 was open until 3 January 2023. The new call will be announced in autumn 2023.
The potential travel period in 2023 is set from 1st May to 31 December.


Each year, a joint call is launched, resulting in up to three travel grants with duration up to 2 weeks (14 days) for researchers from both countries.

The exchange visit programme provides opportunities for researchers from one partner country to visit research institutions in another partner country with the aim to facilitate research cooperation between Estonia and Taiwan. The programme promotes mobility, the building of international contacts and knowledge transfer.

Fields of Research:

  • Health
  • Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society
  • Civil Security for Society
  • Digital, Industry and Space
  • Climate, Energy and Mobility
  • Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment

Applications do not have to be joint projects between researchers from the two countries, but contact must have already been established with the partner researcher before the application is submitted.

PS! In order to receive an Estonian researcher in Taiwan, the host institution must also submit an application to the Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) before the deadline. ETAG can only award the grant if the application has been submitted to MOST and it has been accepted.

To host a Taiwanese researcher in Estonian institution, applicants have to inform the ETAg about the visit.
