OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai
The OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai is the central service platform for Austrian higher education institutions, scientists and students who are interested in cooperations, research and study periods in the metropolitan region of Shanghai and Eastern China.
As a competent contact partner the OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai provides advice, promotes and supports projects in education, science and research. We accompany institutional cooperations from Austria to China and coordinate and support their implementation in Shanghai. Vice versa we support representatives of Chinese higher education in their search for partners in Austria.
For Chinese students we provide information and guidance regarding higher education in Austria and about study and grant/scholarship options; special emphasis is placed on organising grants/scholarships for Chinese PhD students and post-docs for carrying out research in Austria.
Stakeholders behind the OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai are the OeAD-GmbH in Vienna, which is in the ownership of the Republic of Austria and financed by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW), and Fudan University in Shanghai, one of the most renowned universities in the People’s Republic of China.
The OeAD Cooperation Office Shanghai unites agendas of the following institutions and programmes:
- Centre for International Cooperation & Mobility (ICM)
- Communication | Information | Marketing (KIM)
- OeAD Lecturehsip Programme
- Eurasia-Pacific Uninet (EPU)
