Brief presentation of the institution

Institute of Physics Belgrade (IPB) is one of the leading scientific institutions in Serbia and the region. It has a broad expertise in all aspects of physics including applied research and development. The Institute has generated numerous satellite companies commercializing some of the research.
The Institute of Physics Belgrade was founded in 1961 by the government of the Republic of Serbia with a mission to conduct high quality research in the area of physics. Currently it employs around 300 people. Of these 120 are senior researchers, 80 are doctoral and post-doctoral students, 50 are employed in our spin-off companies, and 50 make up IPB’s technical and administrative staff. IPB researchers make up 1% of Serbia’s research sector, producing roughly 10% of the country’s scientific output.
IPB is highly recognized research institute at the EU level, being host to four EU Centers of Excellence: CX-CMCS (Centre of Excellence for Computational Modeling of Complex Systems), OPSA (Centre of Excellence for Optical Spectroscopy Applied in Physics, Material Science and Environmental Protection), IPB-CNP (Reinforcing Experimental Centre for Non-Equilibrium Studies with Application in Nano-Technologies, Etching of Integrated Circuits and Environmental Research), and QUPOM (Reinforcing the Centre for Quantum and Optical Metrology).
