Nokia and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced Thursday they will establish a research facility near MIT's Cambridge campus.

To be called the Nokia Research Center Cambridge, the facility will bring together 20 researchers each from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Nokia Research Center, which is headquartered at Nokia's headquarters in Finland. Some Nokia employees at an existing Nokia R&D facility in suburban Burlington, Mass. are expected to move to the MIT center.

The announcement stated that the research collaboration will "advance the state of the art in mobile computing and communications technologies."

Laurie Armstrong, a Nokia spokesperson, said projects for the center are currently being developed. "The areas of focus are likely (to include) new user interfaces and the development of new mobile equipment using lower power," she said. She added that the researchers are likely also to examine ways to make wireless solutions more intuitive and to find new ways of managing information.

Five initial projects are being developed for the center, which is scheduled to begin operations January 1.

The center will have an international flavor. Nokia's research effort is headed by Dr. Bob Iannucci, an American who is based in Espoo, Finland, while MIT Professor Arvind, a native of India, will be the Cambridge facility's program manager. (Professor Arvind uses only his last name.) Director of the Cambridge operation will be Dr. James Hicks, who has been working at the Nokia Research Center.
