The article represents the results of the cooperation in the sphere of Humanitarian and Social sciences. The interest to social life of Taiwan in Russia from its very beginning can be traced to the last quarter of XIX century, when naval officer Paul Ibis made the first ethnographical investigation of the aboriginal tribes. After the big gap from 1930th up to 1980th scientific works of Russian scholars in Taiwan and with Taiwanese colleagues were resumed. Within the first decade these works were carried out with some foundations and universities. And the good results of them had created the basis for further development of cooperation. It was realized with signing of «Cooperation Agreement between and Russian Foundation for Basic Research and National Science Council [now – Ministry of Science and Technology]» in 1998. During 20-years period 24 projects in the sphere of social and humanitarian sciences were received financial support. In the article we give brief review of them, with the special attention to the most recent project in the field of archaeology (is now under fulfillment by the specialist of our Institute together with Taiwanese colleagues) because it’s very perspective for further interdisciplinary development.
