During the 10th International Symposium ‘Humanitarian Demining 2013, opened by Ivo Josipovi?, President of the Republic of Croatia, both the work of the TIRAMISU project and the work carried out by the University of Zagreb were presented to the public.
The digital newspapers, Mais Online and Croatian Times, have produced dedicated reports on how honeybees can detect landmines buried in the ground from more than three miles away.
