The Taiwan-AG promotes research and teaching on Taiwan within German-speaking Sinology and is made up of members of the German Association for Chinese Studies (Deutsche Vereinigung für Chinastudien e.V.) and other interested parties. 

The idea is to network the subject orientations at the various institutes so that we in the Taiwan Group can benefit from each other and the institutes can benefit from each other and to bring together the subject expertise and teaching content at the various locations so that we can offer students at the respective locations a broader thematic spectrum.
