Welcome to ENBIS

Welcome to the website of the European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics (ENBIS), a platform connecting individuals and organisations, interested in theoretical developments and practical applications in the field of business and industrial statistics.

Please note that individual membership in our network has always been free while there is an annual membership fee for our corporate members.

Although our network aims to be a virtual platform, we also believe in face-to-face networking. That is why we organize an annual Spring Meeting and, traditionally every September, our Annual Conference.

The 2013 ENBIS Spring Meeting entitled "Measurement Systems and Process Improvement: Towards Best Practice and Standards" took place on May 7th and 8th at the National Physical Laboratory in London (UK). Click here for more details.

In 2013 the Annual Conference of ENBIS (ENBIS-13) took place in Ankara (Turkey) from September 16th to 18th, with administrative meetings, and pre-conference courses scheduled for September 15th. The post-conference courses took place on September 18th and September 19th. The event at which we celebrated the International Year of Statistics was as formidable as all our past annual conferences; ENBIS-12 in Ljubljana (Slovenia) being the previous one. View the ENBIS-12 Video!

Immediately following ENBIS-13 (from September 19th to September 21st) there was a Joint Meeting of Young Business and Industrial Statisticians (y-BIS 2013) sponsored by ENBIS and ISBIS. It took place at the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in Istanbul (Turkey). Click here for more details.

The 2014 ENBIS Spring Meeting took place in Paris (France) in April. For the 2014 Annual Conference, ENBIS-14, the participants will travel to Linz (Austria) in September.
