Greetings and introduction to the event

Date: 28 May, 2019

Location: University of Helsinki main building, Fabianinkatu 33, 00170 Helsinki

On behalf of the Finnish Chinese business council, China Tekway Oy Ltd (Finland-China Development & Exchange Center) and our co-organising partners, I am honoured to invite you and your colleagues to join the “Finland-China R&D and Technology Forum” held at the University of Helsinki on 28 May.

Finland is a country well-known for a developed economy, social welfare, high technology and innovation. Its strengths and resources are in the fields of environmental and energy technologies, IT and IOT, automation and high-end manufacturing, electronics and precise instruments, advanced materials and nanotechnologies, medicinal diagnosis and drugs, life science and health care, education and Olympic sports, food science and modern agriculture; the list goes on.

At the beginning of 2019, the Finnish president, Sauli Niinistö, visited China to launch the “2019 China-Finland Year of Winter Sports” together with Chinese president Xi Jinping. They also proclaimed a Joint-Action Plan between China and Finland on promoting a future-oriented co-operative partnership for 2019-2023.

This further promotes and strengthens the Finnish-Chinese partnership and creates a solid foundation for deepening co-operation in the fields of trade, innovation, environmental protection, travel, arctic affairs, and creates a beneficial international environment for talent exchange between Finland and China.

Our event focuses on the following fields.

  • Environmental Science, Energy and Advanced Materials
  • Automation, IT, Big Data, AI and Comprehensive Health
  • Education, Talent Training, Innovation Driven Sustainable Development

We aim to develop the innovation driven research capabilities of all who participate from universities, research institutes, enterprises and companies.

Welcome to the event.
