Estonia-Taiwan travel grant call 2023 is open

Estonia-Taiwan cooperation programme for the call for travel grants to visit Taiwanese research institutions is open. The deadline for applications is 3 January 2023.

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; 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:

  • 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

 The potential travel periood is set from 1 May to 31 December 2023.

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! Inorder 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.
