New Cloud research Institute in Skåne to reinforce Sweden’s Mobile Technology Industry

Lund University, Region Skåne and Sony Mobile have partnered to create a new research institute:
the Mobile and Pervasive Computing Institute at Lund University (MAPCI).
MAPCI will focus on distributed cloud technology – a new area combining communications and software technologies, and take on the explicit role of bridge-builder between existing mobile research centers in southern Sweden as well as with industry. The institute will be a part of Lund University, but located in the same campus as Sony Mobile, Ericsson and ST-Ericsson in Lund. The inauguration of MAPCI will take place before the summer of 2013.
