Results of Finnish Erasmus Mundus 2012: focus on collaboration with Russia, Eastern neighbourhood and Asia

The Lappeenranta University of Technology is partner in the Joint Master in Pervasive Computing & Communications for sustainable development (PERCOM) selected by the Erasmus Mundus Programme in 2012. The Masters course is co-ordinated by the University of Lorraine in France. Other partners are the Luleå University of Technology (Sweden) and the National Research University of IT Mechanics and Optics (Russian Federation).

Currently running are 138 Mundus Masters courses, 14 of which have Finnish partners. This is a decent contribution in terms of the Finnish share in European higher education. Finland fares less well in Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorates with only 1 partnership from among 43 doctorate programmes.
