Dear friends of the STF programme,
4 years and two intakes of a total of 58 researchers from EU Member States have passed, and now it is time to say goodbye to all of you, as the STF office will close its doors on Wednesday 29 August, 2012.
We would like to thank all of you who have contributed to the website and to the programme. You input has made our website more interesting, informative and alive. We hope that you were able to make new contacts through the website, and that these contacts will continue to flourish.
The aim of the STF programme was to create a bridge over which European researchers would find a way to China and the Chinese research arena. We would like to think that we achieved this objective, and that not only the Fellows of both intakes, but many more European researchers have benefitted from our programme.
Though the programme will close, the information on this website is still available for you to look at. In case you require any further information, please contact at the EU Delegation at
