The Chinese Association of Science and Technology in Finland (CASTF) was registered in Helsinki in 2014. The official Chinese name is '芬兰华人科技协会' and Finnish name is 'Kiinalainen tiede ja teknologia yhdistys ry'.

CASTF currently has about 200 members. Over 80% of them are Ph.D. candidates and Ph. D. degree researchers, mainly from the University of Helsinki, Aalto University, Finnish Research Institute, Finnish Companies and Chinese-funded companies. Among the members, over 80% have immigrant background.


The vision of CASTF is to promote the cooperation and development in the fields of science and technology, education, culture, economy and trade between China and Finland. Meanwhile CASTF aims to promote Chinese traditional culture and promote the mutual understanding between people from both nations and promote the unity, cooperation and communication between Chinese and Finnish scholars and professionals. CASTF holds academic seminars and provides a platform for academic exchanges for members. We will continuously support scientists, scholars and highly educated Chinese to integrate well into Finnish Society and working environments.
