Agreement for Scientific Cooperation with the Academia Sinica signed in Jerusalem in 1994.
Academia Sinica, founded in 1928, is the most prominent academic institution in Taiwan, China. Built from scratch, Academia Sinica has overcome many difficult times and gradually developed into an advanced research institution with a growing body of faculties in increasingly diverse research fields. The designated mission of Academia Sinica is to support basic and applied research in the sciences and humanities, promote the academic research in China and to carry our research to meet national needs. Many prominent and inspiring scholars have been recruited to join the Academy, and many major academic development programmes have been implemented to give the Academia Sinica its present international reputation as a world-class institution.
There are at this moment 25 research institutes in Academia Sinica. These are grouped under three divisions: Mathematics and Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Convocation of Academia Sinica is the Society of academicians, individuals who have made outstanding academic contributions to the fields in which they work. Title is an honorary lifetime privilege. The convocation is called once every two years to elect new academicians. It draws up policies on academic research and carries our academic designs, surveys, reviews and research projects entrusted by the government.
