Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation 2013Ð2016

by swisscham in Bilateral Relations

ETH Zurich as the Leading House for the Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation (SSSTC) program has reached an agreement with the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to co-fund the Exchange Grant instrument. Chinese prospective visiting scholars should submit their applications to the CSC, and the Swiss partners should submit their applications to the SSSTC program office. The program was established in 2003 after the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the then Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research (SER) and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). This MoU has since, through the SSSTC program, served as a foundation for intensified research collaboration between Swiss and Chinese scientists. During the first active phase of the SSSTC (2008-2012), nearly 200 collaborative projects have been awarded and some of them are still ongoing.
