Australia-China Young Scientists Exchange Programme

Australia-China Young Scientists Exchange Programme (YSEP) is jointly funded by Australian and Chinese Governments for early to mid-career researchers to have a chance to visit each other every year under the Australia-China Science and Research Fund (ACSRF).

YSEP provides an opportunity for young Australian and Chinese researchers to visit China and Australia respectively on a two week exchange where they could develop their expertise in international collaboration by increasing their understanding of the cultures of the two countries, the science and research practices and systems of the two countries and by providing a catalyst for future collaboration. YSEP aims to support future long term science, technology and innovation collaboration between Australia and China, by bringing together future science leaders from both countries to foster long term relationships.

Since 2006, YSEP has been supporting hundreds of scientists exchanging ideas and building connections. For the 2019 round, 16 Chinese researchers visited Australian institutions during July and later 16 Australian researchers visited Chinese institutions during October successfully.
