Mobile and Pervasive Computing Institute (MAPCI) is a result of combined effort of Lund University, Sony Mobile and Region Skåne. Located on the same campus as Sony Mobile, Ericsson and ST-Ericsson, the institute will be a part of Lund University. MAPCI will focus on distributed cloud technology – an area that combines software and communication technologies.

“MAPCI represents a new player in southern Sweden’s research and innovation environment, breaking new ground in both research area and work model. I am impressed by the force that academia, industry and regional government can unleash when pragmatically joining forces in a common strategy and vision” stated Björn Ekelund, institute’s acting director, in the recent press release

The institute will be launched in the spring of 2013.
