EU and Taiwan initiate scientific research cooperation

Abstract:
As one of the four Asian Tiger economies (namely Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea), Taiwan has much to share in the fields of science and technology and is currently engaging with the EU in a constructive dialogue to the mutual benefit of both sides. The Taiwanese National Science Council (NSC) and the European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) recently announced the start of the first EU-Taiwan science cooperation workshop in Taipei. The workshop will invite top Taiwanese research programmes to take part in the Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7), according to EETO Head of Office Guy Ledoux. The EETO also intend to identify ways in which EU researchers can participate in Taiwanese research programmes.

The FP7 is the EU's largest ever research programme, with a budget of EUR 53 billion and it's projected to last until 2013. The areas of research it will cover include energy, biotechnology, nanotechnology, transportation, humanities, security and space, information and communication technologies (ICT), environment and health. Researchers from Taiwan are also invited to apply for the Marie Curie fellowship, an exchange programme which enables scientists to cooperate closely and spend time in each other's countries.
