Ecopolis Europa has been founded in 2004 in Wageningen, The Netherlands, by representatives of universities, government organisations and enterprises seeking an alternative for the fragmented and mono-disciplinary approaches of sustainable development.

 

From the start, it has been the founders' intention to manage Ecopolis Europa as a flexible and efficient organisation of limited size. Not an entity just doing the same as others, but one that mobilises the best knowledge and expertise available with her partners and manages their practical collaboration.
