China (incl. Chinese Taipei)

The Academy of Finland has agreements on cooperation with three Chinese research funding organisations. The cooperation with the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) covers all scientific disciplines, except those that fall within the remit of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). The cooperation with the CASS covers the humanities, culture, law, social sciences and economics.

The Academy of Finland’s Taiwanese partner is the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). The Academy supports research mobility between Finland and Taiwan in all fields of research.

In September each year, Finnish researchers can apply for mobility funding from the Academy to strengthen research cooperation between Finland and China or Taiwan. The mobility funding is intended for travel and living expenses, not for research or equipment costs.
