The Call for travel grants to visit Taiwanese research institutions on 2022 is closed now. The Call was open from 1st October until 13 December 13, 2021. Next travel grant to visit Taiwanese research institutions in 2023 will open in autumn 2022.


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 potential travel period in 2022 is set from 1 st April to 31 December.

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.

It is not necessary to apply to Estonian Research Council for the receiving of Taiwanese researchers, but Estonian Research Council must be informed of a possible visit.
