Croatian Biometric Society (HBMD) was established in 1989. 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.
