Cooperation with Taiwan

On 3 November 2008, a Memorandum of Understanding on Research Cooperation between the Czech Science Foundation (GACR) and and National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), formerly the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the National Science Council of Taiwan (NSC), was signed by the Presidents of both agencies. The aim of this Memorandum is to establish and broaden cooperation in research and development between researchers and institutions of these two countries and to enable easier exchange of information and techniques in areas of common interest.
The agreement of cooperation involves all areas of science and technology. All scientific and academic workers may take part in it, as long as they meet all criteria required by the Czech Science Foundation and the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Cooperation is focused on bilateral grant projects. Proposals are to be submitted in English language to both grant agencies simultaneously. Proposals must meet all criteria required by both NSTC and GACR. The call for proposals is announced once a year, usually in February/March. Project duration is two to three years. Proposals for bilateral projects have to be based on mutually complementary methodologies and procedures. Proposals need to have one Czech and one Taiwanese Principal Investigator.

The evaluation of project proposals is conducted independently in both partner agencies. Each agency will make the decision of approving a project for funding by itself, based on their project proposal evaluation and by comparing its quality to other national project proposals for the given calendar year. The final decision on the funding of bilateral research projects depends on final approval from both research grant agencies (NSTC and GACR).

Within GACR, proposals are submitted via an online system – GRIS. Czech applicants have to follow the Tender Document of the respective year when submitting the proposals. It will then go through the standard process of evaluation, which is based on a bottom-up peer-review system and evaluation by respective panels.
