IMS Institute - Activities

  • Scientific research activity and development in construction and production of building materials, energy, mechanical engineering, process industry and other areas
  • Laboratory tests and research of materials and products
  • Testing and research of building and mechanical structures
  • Controlling electrical power plants and facilities and equipment under pressure
  • Geotechnical research and field tests
  • Development and application of construction technologies and prestressing systems
  • Creation and control of all phases of project documentation
  • Consulting services and expert supervision
  • Certification of construction products
  • Examination of the competence of test laboratories

The basic idea when establishing the IMS Institute was the need for a unique institution, which, in addition to research and development, would deal with regular control of raw materials, semi-finished products and products of the construction and metal industry.

Today, the IMS Institute participates in almost all significant construction projects in Serbia, in the design, control, testing and supervision phase, as well as in work on condition assessment and revitalization of hydro and thermal energy plants.

The strength of the IMS Institute is not only in its numerous laboratories, but also in the various specialist services it provides, such as its own construction technology solutions and prestressing systems. With its multidisciplinarity, the institute has been a reference institution for all areas of construction and the building materials industry since its foundation until today.

A decades-long tradition of professional activity in the mentioned areas, a series of completed buildings in the country and abroad, the most modern equipment and specialized highly skilled staff, recommended us as a reliable partner to a large number of important investors, contractor firms and consultants and brought numerous recognitions.


The IMS Institute is accredited as a research and development institute in the field of technical and technological sciences (civil engineering, mechanical engineering, energy…), where it achieves significant results in basic and applied research, transfers acquired knowledge to the economy, trains personnel and invests in research infrastructure. In addition to regular work, the research staff is engaged in research projects, cooperates with a large number of related institutions, organizes a large number of scientific and professional meetings, publishes research results in international and domestic journals and applies developed technical solutions and patents.

The IMS Institute is the only representative from Serbia in the European Network of Construction Research Institutes (ENBRI), as the only member of this association of top European institutions from a country outside the European Union.

With its tradition, exceptional personnel potential, equipment and technical resources at its disposal, the mission of the IMS Institute is to provide highly professional services in the field of its activity, i.e. to bring the construction and metal industry and energy industry of Serbia and the region closer to modern European ones through research and development, control and experimental activities. requirements and standards.

The vision of the IMS Institute is to maintain its position among the leading multidisciplinary scientific and research organizations in Serbia and the region, with participation in all significant projects in the field of construction and metal industry and energy through the placement of high-quality commercial services and thus contribute to the development of Serbia and the region through application of the results of scientific work in the economy.

The aim of the IMS Institute, in cooperation with its business partners, is to maintain a leading role in the field of testing and research of materials, products and technologies and to contribute to the development of Serbia and the region through the application of the results of scientific work in the economy.
