Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies

The Vienna Center for Taiwan Studies was formally established in the Department of East Asian Studies/ Sinology at the University of Vienna in December 2009 with an inauguration lecture by the first Taiwanese guest professor, Professor Li-chung PENG, of National Chengchi University on the concept of Taiwan studies.

The Center has since run several bi-lateral Austrian-Taiwanese conferences at the Department of East Asian Studies. The Center also organized Vienna participation in the alternate Taiwanese conferences of 2010 and 2012.

The Center regularly stages Taiwan film presentations and hosts guest researchers from Taiwan.
