When we started

Ecorys UK started life as a spin-off from Aston University in Birmingham. Senior researchers Frank Joyce and Hugh Williams OBE set out to pursue a new type of research-led company grounded on rigorous research and consultancy that held a social impact in the wider world.

In 1982, they founded Ecotec Research & Consulting, a company with a geographic focus not only in the UK but also in the wider European Union. In 2000, Ecotec Research & Consulting joined forces with two leading companies from the Netherlands – the Netherlands Economic Institute (NEI) and Kolpron – that had a similarly strong history of quality research and consulting going back more than eight decades. An early director of NEI, Jan Tinbergen, received the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1969. The new group of companies was renamed Ecorys and in 2010 Ecotec Research & Consulting became Ecorys UK.

Ecorys now works in over 100 countries with over 625 employees from 40 nationalities.
