   Acdemia Sinica and the International Institute for Asian Studies

                                         article 1

This annex specifies the short term exchange of excellent researchers (at PhD level)
as mentioned in the Memorandum of Understanding, article 1., signed on May15,

                                         article 2

The IIAS grants researchers from the Academia Sinica 6 “research months” per
calendar year, to be divided over max. two fellows. Per fellow a max. stay of three
months is allowed. The APARP selects the researcher(s) that it wants to send to the
Netherlands for a certain period, and submits name(s), curriculum vitae, a short
research proposal and preferred time schedule to the IIAS. Upon joint agreement
these researchers will be invited by the IIAS. An identical procedure takes place vice
versa: the APARP grants the IIAS 6”research months” per year, following the same
terms as mentioned above.

                                         article 3

The sending institute may offer the researchers a grant to cover such expenses as the
international flight, living expenses, etc.; the receiving institute will arrange for
adequate housing, and office facilities (computer, office supplies, etc.) where
available at the institutes related to the concerned researchers’ field. In both institutes
a contact person will be functioning as intermediary.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF the APARP and the IIAS sign this ANNEX in
