On 15 November, the Estonian Research Council opened the Estonia-Taiwan cooperation programme for the call for travel grants to visit Taiwanese research institutions. The deadline for applications is 15 January 2024.
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 two 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.
The potential travel period is set from 1 June to 31 December 2024.
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! 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 must inform the ETAG about the visit.
Estonian applicant must submit the electronically signed application by e-mail to:
