Due to it’s role to join together all the companies in the system Institute ”Mihailo Pupin” is often referred to as “mother company”.
Research and development priorities of the Institute are closely related to the projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Republic of Serbia, as well as the strategies of the European Union (Sixth and Seventh Framework Program, Interreg / CADSES, COST, Eureka, etc.). The general idea is to include all our researchers, to the bigger or lesser extent, in national and international projects.
By establishing Fraunhofer – Pupin Joint Project Office ICT expertise and resources of the Institute Mihailo Pupin and the prominent German scientific research organization Fraunhofer First from Berlin are united in order to offer the innovative solutions in the areas of common interest, such as information systems management, applications and technologies for knowledge and content management, e-learning, decision support systems (DSS), etc. In this way, the team of experts is gathered, whose experience and expertise is better illustrated by the fact that they have been engaged in over 30 projects in the past few years.
Several research centres are part of the Institute:
Joint Project Office - the Mihailo Pupin Institute is uniting ICT expertise and resources with prominent German R&D organization, Fraunhofer-FIRST from Berlin. At the JPO, systems engineering and information technologies are combined to develop innovative solutions in the area of management information systems, knowledge and content technologies and applications, e-education, decision support systems, etc. Details
Science and Technology Policy Research Center – was formed at the “Mihajlo Pupin” Institute in 1987 as a response to the awareness that a better understanding of the importance of science and technology for overall development is essential to successful work in new technologies.
To enhance the effectiveness of investment into R&D and innovation activities, the Center’s experts have focused their efforts on studying and synthesizing development strategies, policies, plans and programs to meet the needs of governmental agencies, regional and local administration, firms, as well as the Institute’s own needs. Details
Robotics Laboratory – offers broad knowledge and experience in robotics, automation and control engineering. Special competency is focused on humanoid, service and rehabilitation robotics, system identification, advance modeling and control of large-scale systems, intelligent control, synthesis of artificial anthropomorphic locomotion, trajectory planning, bio-inspired intelligent control of autonomous systems, cognitive robotic systems, multi-agent cooperative robotics, etc. Details
Systems Analysis Center – For more than 30 years is committed to research and application of system analysis methods and development of information and decision support systems. Details
Gas Technology Center – Since 1995. is accredited as a control organization according to the standard SRPS ISO 17020: 2002, type A, and performs its activities in its own laboratory accredited according to standard JUS ISO 17025. Details
Besides R&D projects the following programs are realised in the mother company:
• Surveillance, Alert & Warning Systems
• Toll Collection Systems
• Measurement of non-electrical values and production of various sensors
