BioSense Institute cross-fertilizes two most promising sectors in Serbia: ICT and agriculture. As a Centre of Excellence for advanced technologies in sustainable agriculture and food security, BioSense conducts multidisciplinary research in the fields of micro and nanoelectronics, communications, signal processing, remote sensing, big data, robotics and biosystems. BioSense advances and integrates all that ICT can offer today – nanomaterials, low-cost miniature sensors, satellite imaging, robotics, big data analytics – to provide as much information as possible to the agricultural sector, support the development of sustainable agriculture and enable production of safe and healthy food for future generations. Through many projects, such as FP7 FRACTALS, H2020 KATANA and H2020 IoF2020, close collaboration with the SMEs ecosystem was established, which enlarged the capacity of the Institute as business accelerator. Currently, BioSense institute is involved in 15 H2020 projects.
Main role in DIATOMIC
