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.

In 2013 the Annual Conference of ENBIS (ENBIS-13) took place in Ankara (Turkey). The event at which we celebrated the International Year of Statistics was as formidable as all our past annual conferences; for example ENBIS-12 in Ljubljana (Slovenia) - you should view the ENBIS-12 Video! For the 2014 Annual Conference, ENBIS-14, the participants travelled to Linz (Austria).

In 2015, the Spring Meeting took place in Barcelona (Spain). The 15th Annual Conference (ENBIS-15) will take place in Prague (Czech Republic) in September.
