The Vienna Taiwan Lecture Series were established in November 2012 with a small grant by the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Vienna and with many voluntary and non-paid contributions by teachers, staff and students of the Sinology at the Department of East Asian Studies, University of Vienna.

There have always been Taiwan-related talks at the institute, and we felt the need to systematize and to institutionalize them. Within the Vienna Taiwan Lecture Series, guests and talks can be announced earlier, and the invitation distributed to interested persons outside of the institute.

Since March 2013, the Lectures are integrated into Taiwan-related teaching at our institute, and have also been made part of the cross-continental teaching cooperation with Taiwan.
