This opportunity is co-funded between ESRC and NSTC.
NSTC run the commissioning process for this opportunity.
Applicants should provide one joint Taiwan-UK proposal, which reflects a jointly developed programme of work between the 2 partners.
All proposals should adhere to NSTC’s Chinese-language specification.
All proposals should be submitted to NSTC. They should not be additionally submitted to ESRC.
If successful, proposals will be awarded as 2 separate grants, 1 by NSTC and 1 by ESRC. Therefore your proposal should have 2 clearly separate budgets for:
- the UK-based researcher(s), which will be funded by ESRC
- the Taiwan-based researcher(s), which will be funded by NSTC
The UK component must follow ESRC budgetary rules, and the Taiwan component must follow NSTC budgetary rules.
Further details will be provided at the time regarding how to bring the UK component of a successful proposal onto ESRC systems, but please note that this is an administrative process required to issue funding to the UK team. Successful projects will not be subject to any further assessment.
View the NSTC funding page.
UK applicants must complete a UK eligibility template alongside the full proposal to NSTC. This is a mandatory submission.
The UK eligibility template does not require additional submission to ESRC.
The information will be used for eligibility checks only. This template will not be considered in the assessments process.
The UK eligibility template must be completed in English.
