The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute was established in 1997 as part of the Faculty of Science of University of Southern Denmark. In 1999 the Institute moved into new premises donated by the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møllers Foundation. Today, the Institute is located partly at the original Maersk Building and partly at the new, adjacent premises of the Faculty of Engineering.
