  1. Purpose and Applicant Qualification

NTUST and CTU have agreed to conduct a mutual collaboration to aim at promoting their research work and achievements to the international academic and industrial societies.

As such, researchers from both universities are encouraged to submit proposals for collaborative research projects. By definition, any collaborative research project should be conducted by researchers and personnel from both NTUST and CTU.

Applications for the current grant will not be accepted under either circumstance:

  1.  Previous conducted collaborative research project (excluding the 2024 collaborative research project) is not completed or the final report is not submitted yet.
  2.  No associated SCI, SSCI, or A&HCI papers are published within two years after the completion of the previous conducted collaborative research project (excluding the 2024 collaborative research project).

 

  1. Assessment and Selection Committee

An Assessment and Selection Committee (ASC), which consists of deans and executives from NTUST and CTU, supervises the procedures for the review, assessment, and the selection of the proposed research projects. The ASC is also in charge of the allocation of funding to the approved research projects.

  1. Topics for collaborative research

The research topics are not limited to any category.

  1. Structure of research team

Each research team should consist of one principal investigator (PI) from NTUST and one PI from CTU. Inclusion of students and other personnel is optional.

  1. Project Execution Period

1 January 2025 - 31 December 2025.

  1. Constraints on the use of funding

The funding to each research team is limited to 500,000 TWD or equivalently 400,000 CZK (NTUST group: up to 250,000 TWD, CTU group: up to 200,000 CZK). The funding cannot be used as the personal income of the PIs. The funding can be used for travel, equipment, consumable products, personal income to students, and miscellaneous expenses.
