RCAFi - Network of Argentine Scientists in Finland

Updated date: 17/06/2021

The Network of Argentine Scientists in Finland (RCAFi) was created in April 2015 within the framework of the RAICES Program of the Argentine Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation. RCAFi is a group of researchers, scientists, technologists and highly skilled Argentine professionals living in Finland.

The RCAFi is an apolitical group that does not seek profit but to promote the creation of new ties between Argentina and Finland through scientific and technological research.

The scientific coordinator of RCAFi is MD Guido Giunti. The technical coordination of the network is held by a diplomatic officer of the Argentine Embassy in Finland, which supports and accompanies the operation of the group. The members of the RCAFi meet regularly at the Embassy.
