TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) on Friday (Aug. 21) announced a technical exchange program on its website, seeking to recruit 10 Taiwanese scientific researchers who will each receive a monthly salary of approximately NT$64,000 (US$2,180) if they participate.

According to the announcement, the priority funding areas of the "2020 Yong Taiwanese Scientists Exchange Program" include health, agro-ecology, and information technology. The program will be supervised by the MOST Office of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Affairs and administered by the Cross-Strait Tech and Information Exchange Center.

MOST claimed the program is designed to sponsor young Taiwanese scientists, scholars, and researchers for short-term scientific cooperation with Chinese institutions and corporations. It added the initiative could help develop talents from both sides and enhance cross-strait academic exchanges.

MOST said individuals who agree to participate in the program will engage in technical exchanges for no less than six months. Only 10 people will be recruited, reported ETtoday.
