Founded in Novi Sad, Serbia, in 2014, INOSENS is an innovation driven consultancy focused on value creation in the agrifood value chain. INOSENS brings substantial experience to the diversified agricultural sector, which it has developed by bridging the gap between Information Communication Technologies and the Agricultural Sector. The company heavily relies on various co-development methodologies, adapted in-house to the specific characteristics of the agrifood sector to help companies from the information and computer technology sector to recognize, evaluate and seize upon business opportunities in agrifood. INOSENS builds on key accounts from the agrifood sector and maintains strong and lasting alliances with complementary players (e.g., hardware vendors, agronomists and food scientists). Moreover, INOSENS has a keen understanding of many critical agricultural issues and challenges that farmers face when seeking to grow and elevate their farming performances. INOSENS is actively engaged in pan-European Horizon 2020 Projects as well as in consulting with companies in both Europe and the Middle East on implementing precision agriculture technology and sustainable agricultural business models.
