The JSPS Alumni Club in Finland (ACF) was established in 2009, Turku Finland.

As part of the JSPS Alumni Club family we share the common objective to promote international research collaboration between Japan and Finland including academia and industry. Approximately 10 finnish scientists go to Japan every year through the programs JSPS has to offer, and everyone is welcome to become a member of ACF.

At the moment, the Finnish alumni club has around 70 members.
