Young Scholars Workshop

The ERCCT organises a yearly Young Scholars Workshop, so Ph.D. students (3rd year and above) and postdocs of the social sciences working on academic projects related to Taiwan or China are invited to submit their application.

The workshop will provide young scholars with the opportunity to:

  • present their research to an international audience;
  • engage in scholarly exchange on topics related to theory and methodology;
  • fine-tune the theoretical framework of their respective research projects;
  • write an article on their research for publication in the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs;
  • get to know Tuebingen and its University;

Ten to twelve young scholars (five-six each from Europe and Taiwan) will be invited to attend.
Travel expenses and accommodation are fully covered by the ERCCT.

We still welcome applications for participance in the workshop in December 2020, deadline is September 15!

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we had to postpone the ERCCT Young Scholars Workshop 2020 to December 13 to 19! So, there are still a few slots open for interested applicants:

8th Young Scholars Workshop will take place December 13 to 19, 2020


The ERCCT postpones its 8th workshop for emerging young scholars to be held from December 13 to 19, instead from 28 June to 4 July, 2020. Applicants shall be Ph.D. students (3rd year and above) and postdocs and are particularly encouraged to submit proposals related to the workshop’s leading topic on "Taiwan and Security Cooperation in North East Asia". However, submissions on other topics in the field of social science research on contemporary Taiwan or Cross-strait relations are equally welcomed.
