WHO WE ARE?
Croatian Biometric Society (HBMD) was established in 1989. In 2014 we have been celebrating our 25th anniversary. A quarter of a century is not a long time for a scientific society, but it is enough to demonstrate existence of a vibrant research community. The Society brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines and institutions from agriculture and forestry through biomedicine, anthropology, psychology, kinesiology to statistics and mathematics. Since 1994 we organize BIOSTAT symposium, and since 1996 the International School of Biometrics.
The University of Zagreb (1669) is the oldest and biggest university in South-Eastern Europe. Ever since its foundation, the University has been continually growing and developing and now consists 29 faculties, three art academies and the Centre for Croatian Studies. With its comprehensive programmes and over 50,000 full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students the University is the strongest teaching institution in Croatia. It offers a wide range of academic degree courses leading to Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees in the following fields: Arts, Biomedicine, Biotechnology, Engineering, Humanities, Natural and Social Sciences. It is also a strongly research-oriented institution, contributing with over 50 percent to the total research output of the country.
