Project aim: ANTARES aims to evolve BioSense Institute into a European Centre of Excellence (CoE) for advanced technologies in sustainable agriculture. We strive to deliver disruptive digital solutions to the European farming sector, boost research excellence, stimulate entrepreneurship and employment at regional level, and secure enough safe food for growing global population.
About the project: To achieve this, ANTARES will focus on three pillars of sustainability: strong research infrastructure that includes the new building and state-of-the-art equipment, dedicated human resources plan, and scientific excellence. A quantum leap in human resources and research infrastructure enabled by ANTARES will level-up scientific capabilities of BioSense. The Institute will explore scientific and technological frontiers across various disciplines: material science, micro and nano electronics, sensor design, remote sensing, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and biosystem research.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 739570.
