On October 1st, Estonian Research Council opens the Taiwan-Estonia cooperation programme for the call for travel grants to visit Taiwanese research institutions.
The deadline for applications is December 13, 2021.
The potential travel periood is set from April 1st to December 31st , 2022.
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.
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.
Fields of Research:
- 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.
NB! 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.
Travel grant application form and guidelines are available at the webpage of Estonian Research Council.
Digitally signed applications should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
