Education & Skills

Education is the key to participation of individuals in society. Good education and policy are major contributing factors to any well-functioning society and strong economy. A good functioning national education system has to do with quality, accessibility, cost of education, organisation and policy and the correlation with the labour market.

This is of course obvious for children and youths, who will soon become productive members of our society. But it also goes for adults: lifelong learning is a very important theme in national and European policies.

Dedicated education experts of Ecorys work closely with education institutions, interest groups and policy makers. We work at regional, national and international levels in order to optimise education systems and promote skills development.
