As announced earlier, the new building will be unique in Serbia, because, thanks to its special antivibration characteristics, it will enable the use of state-of-the-art scientific equipment that is necessary for the development of micro and nano electronics, sensors and other devices. This will put a powerful tool at the disposal of Serbian agriculturists, leading to healthier and larger crops, since the new building will make the scientists’ job easier.
For this project, Serbia got a loan of EUR 11 million from the European Investment Bank (EIB), and under the agreement on financing signed in 2017
, the state is to invest EUR 3 million within Phase 2 of the Antares project. Around EUR 4.5 million will be spent on the construction of the building, whereas EUR 9.5 million is planned for modern scientific equipment.
