In pursuit of cooperation in Science and Technology between the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the National Science Council (NSC) of Taipei, the DOST is calling for mutually beneficial and collaborative project proposals for implementation in the 3rd Quarter of 2013.

As a requirement, proposals must be submitted to DOST while their Taiwanese counterpart must submit the same proposal to NSC for separate review and evaluation.  Only projects approved by both sides will be implemented under this cooperation scheme.  Project proposals to be submitted must fall under any of the following identified areas for cooperation:

1.  Genomics, Nanotechnology, and Biotechnology in application to Agriculture and Health (e.g. Health – Dengue Virus including drug discovery and development, development of nano-based diagnostics based on cold and chemiluminescent detection of Dengue Virus; Agriculture – nanomaterials for agricultural applications, biodiversity and conservation and crop/aquatic stock improvement/safety);

2.  Climate change, environment, geosciences/geohazards and tectonics;

3.  Use of sensors towards “Smart Cities”.

Modes of cooperation include joint research / study, exchange of scientists / technical experts, capacity building, scientific and technical access to facilities, provision of professional services, organization of scientific conferences, symposia, training courses, workshops and exhibitions and the Sandwich Scholarship Program (SSP).

Interested parties may download the necessary forms at  Submission of proposals is until 30 March 2013 to be sent to the International Technology Cooperation Unit (ITCU), Room 301, 3rd Floor, DOST Building, Gen.
