WHAT IS IRIS?

IRIS is the world’s largest network of research institutes. With over 30 offices around the world, the network enables researchers to perform better global research into international markets, consumers, businesses and societies.

IRIS is a network, not an association. All companies are independently owned and there is personal involvement by owners/top management in research activities.

IRIS is a network of “know-how” that empowers it’s members to compete at an international level. The point of the network is to allow us to compete and share business at a quality level that can’t be matched by the other global multinationals.

HISTORY AND AWARDS

IRIS network originally formed in 1986, as a simple gathering of friends after ESOMAR conferences. Nowadays IRIS plays an important role in the field of market research, serious about sharing work and know-how internationally.
