Ecorys is one of the oldest research and consulting companies in Europe. In the summer of 2012 it will celebrate our 83rd anniversary.
Ecorys history dates back to 1929, when a group of businessmen from Rotterdam established the Foundation The Netherlands Economic Institute (NEI). Poverty relief and other social issues were regarded as important social and economic problems. During the ’90s, Ecorys’ expertise proved important with regards to the growth of the EU and reformation processes in countries in Middle and Eastern Europe. To be able to cope with globalization and in order to stay competitive, NEI developed into a pan European company. Offices were established in Brussels and Moscow.
In 1999 NEI merged with Kolpron Consultants. In 2000 the diversification and internationalization was continued by merging with the British company ECOTEC Research and Consulting, specializing in social policy. The name Ecorys was chosen as new name for the Group.
