The European Association of Taiwan Studies (EATS) is delighted to announce the call for applications to its Workshop Grant.
All proposals for organising workshops related to Taiwan are welcome, in humanities and social sciences as well as interdisciplinary fields. The funding available is up to €2,000.
As the COVID-19 pandemic makes workshop-planning difficult, we will consider other forms of workshops such as hybrid workshops with any mixture of online and face-to-face presentations. After the grant is awarded, we are also flexible with time changes etc. due to the pandemic.
EATS membership is required.
