Upgrading an important Serbian research centre

EU funding enabled an established Serbian research centre to obtain new equipment and personnel as well as train current staff. The scientists are now in a better position to develop tomorrow’s electronic components.
Upgrading an important Serbian research centre
Integrated microsystems are products (systems) that contain more than one integrated circuit serving more than one function – for example, sensing and signal processing. They are revolutionising the way we live, being incorporated into medical and telecommunications equipment, cars and computers, to name only a few.

The Center for Integrated Microsystems and Components (CIMC) at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia is a regional leader in this important and highly dynamic field. Its capacity had become limited due to a lack of appropriate test equipment for high-frequency devices and other highly complex microsystems and components. Such equipment is vital to the development of new designs and concepts.

EU funding of the ‘Reinforcement of the centre for integrated microsystems and components’ (Recimico) project strengthened the ability of the CIMC to carry out cutting-edge work and facilitated its integration into other European research projects.

The Center purchased much needed equipment, hired two young researchers and sent its staff for training at selected European partner institutions. In addition, two workshops were organised and scientists participated in numerous conferences with several publications in international and regional journals.

Overall, Recimico reinforced the CIMC with new equipment and personnel, and facilitated training to produce a critical mass of specialised researchers. The CIMC is now in position not only to lead the West Balkan region in integrated microsystems research and development, but also to cooperate and collaborate with the best in the EU.
