In 2014. he startied promotion of Biomedical Engineering in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the rest of South East European area. The same year he established Bosnia and Herzegovina Medical and Biological Engineering Society (Društvo za medicinski i biološki inžinjering u Bosni i Hercegovini - DMBIUBIH) that gathers University professors, Professionals and Students in the field of Engineering, Pharmacy, Medicine, Physics, Chemistry and Biology in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Almir is President of this Society.
The same year he established the first Medical Devices Verification Laboratory Verlab in South – East European Region. The lab started with independent verification of medical devices in Bosnia and Herzegovina and SEE area. This is the first European laboratory that deals with medical devices which are the part of the legal metrology system. In 2015. DMBIUBIH led by President Badnjević implemented the first International Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering (CMBEBIH) in Bosnia and Herzegovina with almost 500 participants from 20 different countries. That was the biggest scientific event in the last 20 years in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Two year later, in 2017., they made second International Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering (CMBEBIH) with more than 700 participants from the 37 different world countries.

With this event, Badnjević moved the borders of the scientific events in the Europe. From 2015 he is working as Assistant Professor and Head of Department of Genetics and Bioengineering at Faculty of Engineering and Information technologies at International Burch University. In 2016 he received the rector's award from the International Burch University as one of the best researcher in past year. Also, he is Assistant Professor at Technical Faculty, University of Bihać in the field of Intelligent Systems and Artificial Neural Networks. By three years from the starting activities in Biomedical Engineering he employed more than 300 young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
