In seeking to address the concerns and challenges of the 21st century Institute will continue to emphasize and build on its unique strengths. One of these is definitely its pool of inter-disciplinary expertise, which results in capability to develop large-scale complex system solutions. IMP should remain a nucleus for nurturing Serbian innovation capacities, where individual solutions for technical and organizational problems are generated in close collaboration with industrial partners.
Enabling a community-wide use of knowledge and information, and ensuring their effective utilization and universal access are prerequisites for economic, social and cultural development in today’s world. Institute Mihailo Pupin is determined to take a strategic role in a guidance of Serbian community towards a knowledge-based economy as an incubator of ICT business ideas and an expert driving force behind development of a vivid ICT sector.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of information technology and engineering solutions and services in Serbia and important and respectable partner to EU and world-wide companies as an European-based Offshore Technology Center.
We act on the conviction that the men and women of IMP will always be our most important asset. Being a part of a vibrant and sophisticated knowledge-based ICT industry, we are more than aware of the fact that how much we know – that’s how much we actually worth. That is why one of the most important responsibilities of our managers is to maintain high-quality structure of our personnel and continuous reinvestment in their education.
Institute Mihailo Pupin’s skilled and creative R&D workforce assembles 250 researchers (7 Univ. Prof., 22 PhDs and 35 MSc) that mainly graduated from University of Belgrade, School of Electrical Engineering, and got their Master of Science and PhD qualifications either in Belgrade or in prominent European and global university centers.
Most of our researchers have been recruited directly from University through internships. They recognized in our Institute a unique chance to be engaged in R&D projects of national importance, while being encouraged to broaden their knowledge, take graduate and postgraduate courses and employ their creativity to the full extent.
On the other hand, this recruitment policy provides IMP with a carefully selected high-quality workforce that has passed equal apprenticeship training programs and fully meets our needs by being familiar with our codes of conduct and standard procedures applied in our organization.
IMP is an equal opportunities employer, employing men and women of various ethnic origin and creed.

Also, development teams of two Institute’s companies: View SCADA in Automation and Embedded systems in Telecommunications, have been successfully certified according to the IT Mark model
Institute Mihailo Pupin has a long-term orientation in cross-border cooperation with companies and institutions, whether if it is a case of involvement in a joint research or application-orientated development project, purely academic collaboration, or providing services from our service portfolio.
We are actively searching for matching collaborators for entering the 7th Framework Programme projects in fields of our expertise. Currently Institute is participating in more than ten EU funded consortiums. We are inviting potential partners to asses the scope of our R&D profile and the know-how we are leveraging, and to contact us for further details if they spot an opportunity for gaining mutual benefits in entering various projects with joint forces.
One of the most important partnerships IMP achieved with the Fraunhofer First (Berlin, Germany) – the largest and most renowned institute in the field of ICT in the European Union. Working on commercial projects the Institute established cooperation with several recognized international companies such as: Motorola, Texas Instruments, Raytheon, Oracle, Kapsch, etc. In May 2011 IMP was selected to be a member of Texas Instruments (TI) EMEA Design House Network.
