Scientific Cooperation Exchange Program

The Scientific Cooperation Exchange Program with the People?s Republic of China (SCEP) supports international exchanges that promote agricultural development and economic growth, and mitigate animal and plant health issues that impede trade.

This unique program offers excellent opportunities for

U. S. teams of up to 5 members to initiate linkages with potential long-term collaborators at Chinese institutions throughout the People?s Republic of China (PRC).





Under a special USDA Scientific Technological Exchange Agreement with the PRC, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture specifically tailors two-week visits to China to meet the scientific objectives of each team.

U. S. teams are responsible only for their international airfare to and from China.
