About Us

The BANOROB project is intended to establish a high level industrial related education within production engineering at University of Banja Luka. There will be a special focus on robotics and automation because this knowledge is essential in a long term perspective, but in addition, includes methodology which automatically leads to efficient companies even though manual work force is used as a first step.


  • BANORAB cooperation is a “Success story” – changes the mindset – break the barriers
  • Enhanced curricula and quality of service for students and teaching staff
  • Connecting research in Norway – empowers research in Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • International Networking & industrial application – chance for new development chapter at UBL
  • Cooperation Agreement as a “prelude” for possible Strategic Partnership Initiatives in light of Bosnia and Herzegovina EU aspirations and Norwegian development model and know-how in many areas
