About our company and myself

We (Bioanim, http://www.bioanim.com ) are a SME from Slovenia, interested to cooperate with you. We started to participate in EU projects in 1999 and have been since involved in FP5, FP6, FP7, Lifelong learning and other types of EU projects. My company Amnim PIC number is 990486013. We design and produce (web)3D visualizations and e-learning software, especially from the field of biology, ecology or medicine.


Our specialty is the production of educational material in 3D virtual reality - typically including a strong flavor of gamification (edutainment style). As we live in space it is, especially in the case of biological and medical topics, natural also to learn about them in the (virtual) space. In the last time we are especially proud of our virtual reality apps for iPad and Android devices - try our ear project which you can download for free from http://www.bioanim.com


I am a biologist, I made my Ph.D. on the nervous system of insects (crickets) and worked for ten years on the institute of biology as a pure scientist. Then I discovered the educational possibilities that were made possible by the computer boom in the nineties. So for the last 19 years I have been designing and producing educational softw are in the virtual reality with my company Amnim d.o.o. I managed to survive because I combine my bio-medical expertise with the knowledge of computer visualization and coding. This is very practical also in the EU projects where for this reason my company is very cost effective.

Our company profile and recent projects

Bioanim (Amnim d.o.o., http://www.bioanim.com ), center for scientific visualization Ljubljana, Slovenia, produces educational and scientific software projects containing animations in web virtual reality about the structure and function of the cell, tissue, human body and other topics from the field of biology or medicine. We develop products helping to learn about those topics in biology or medicine that are hard to understand from the textbooks only.

We are intensively engaged in establishing the educati= onal bridges between Europe and Asia. Our initiative is to use the modern natural science education to ease the understanding between Asia and Europe. We are proud to have become the member of the Euro-Asia Silk Route Initiative http://www.fonsr.org
