in the United Kingdom



Finnish Science Society in the United Kingdom is a non-profit membership organisation that was founded in 2017 to provide a network for Finnish researchers and anyone interested in Finnish science, and to advance and promote scientific collaboration and mobility between Finland and the United Kingdom. We will promote cutting edge research and scientific collaboration between two countries by providing information and advice, and by organizing stimulating events.  Finnish scientists based in the UK and anyone else interested in Finnish science are welcome to join the society by filling the membership form.
