Who we are?


BioSense, Research and Development Institute for IT in biosystems, is a pioneer in digital transformation of agriculture in Serbia, founded in 2015. Exploring scientific and technological frontiers regarding the application of IT in agriculture, the Institute strives to deliver state-of-the- art digital solutions to the farming sector in Serbia and the world, in order to ensure higher yields with smaller investments.



BioSense researchers do not ask why, they ask why not!


Material science, micro and nano electronics, sensor design, remote sensing, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, biosystem research, cellular agriculture and bioarcheology are just some of the scientific fields BioSense integrates to make agriculture more efficient and uses science as a backbone for economic growth, social well-being, and employment.
Where are we on the world’s scientific map?


Thanks to such a transdisciplinary approach, the Institute has left an indelible mark in the international scientific community. This is proved by the participation in 30 national and around 50 international projects, most of them from the European Union’s Research and Innovation Program – Horizon 2020, as well as numerous national and international awards that researchers from BioSense have won. The most prominent project, ANTARES (H2020), supported by the European Commission and the Republic of Serbia, aims to turn the BioSense Institute into a leading European Center of scientific excellence in sustainable agriculture.



Science for society


None of the scientific breakthroughs remain bound within the walls of our laboratories. They are integrated into society and available to farmers, extension services, companies, policy makers, students, and pupils. In March 2018, BioSense launched the first Digital Farm in Serbia that provides all stakeholders with hands-on learning opportunities and showcases how AgTech solutions can be implemented in real-world settings. The virtual part of the farm – the AgroSense digital platform – enables farmers and extension services to monitor crops for free and plan activities using computers and mobile phones, based on the data collected from satellite images, drones, robots, various sensors, and meteorological stations. More than 15,000 registered users are an indicator of successful digital transformation. Due to the partnership with the European Space Agency, BioSense is the only distributor of Sentinel satellite imagery in the country. Also, the impact is spread globally through other collaborations with FAO, EBRD, World Bank and UNICEF.



We kickstart ideas with others


The Institute creates a bridge between science and business and fosters an entrepreneurial mentality in Serbia. The BioSense accelerator provides mentoring, business, and scientific support to innovative local AgTech entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses in developing new digital solutions and improving the existing ones.
