The Nederlandse organisatie voor wetenschappelijk onderzoek (NWO
) in The Hague and the National Science Council (NSC) in Taipei,
with a view to developing scientific relations, have agreed to
start the implementation of scientific cooperation by means of
an exchange of scientists.
1 The exchange will be encouraged by both institutions in all f-
ields of scientific endeavour, including humanities, social s-
ciences, natural sciences and technical Sciences.
2 The sending party shall nominate candidates for exchange visi-
ts and propose them to the receiving party. Priority will be
given to those scientists who have academic ties with their c-
ounterparts in the host country.
3 The duration of visits will be determined from case to case a-
fter consideration of the recommendation from the relevant co-
unterparts in each country. The total duration of all visits
together during the initial phase of this agreement shall not
exceed 24 months per year for either party.
4 The sending party shall pay the costs for international trans-
poration, the receiving party shall provide living expenses.
The receiving party shall also provide support for research-r-
elated domestic travel within the receiving country, as well
as medical costs arising in connection with unforeseen illness
5 Administrative matters and further details relating to the im-
plemention of this programme will be dealt with by exchange of
letters between the two parties.
6 Both parties acknowledge the importance of joint research act-
ivities and scientific seminars and will examine the possibil-
ity of implementing such activities in the future.
7 This agreement will be in force from 1 January 1990 and will
be reviewed every three years. It will continue to be valid u-
ntil either party notifies the other of its intention to term-
inate the agreement, in which case any existing exchange acti-
vity will be brought to an orderly conclusion. The notificati-
on shall be made at least one year in advance of the terminat-
ion of the agreement.
