EURAS has been established in 1996 from the key activities developed at Ghent University (Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology). EURAS provides assistance to the industry and governmental agencies in the field of environmental toxicology and risk assessments and its scientific services are embedded in the sound academic experience of the core project team. In 2001, EURAS joined forces with ECOLAS. By this alliance EURAS has strengthened its position by obtaining specialist expertise in Environmental Impact Assessment, socio-econometrics and marine ecosystems. In 2006 ECOLAS decided to join the ranks of the international ARCADIS group, an international company providing consultancy, engineering and management services in infrastructure, environment and facilities, to enhance mobility, sustainability and quality of life. This evolution further broadens the scope of environmental knowhow in the fields of in situ technologies, remediation and global product stewardship. Together with ARCADIS Belgium and BBL Science, another subsidiary of the ARCADIS group, EURAS-ECOLAS complements now over 20 experienced professionals involved in REACH relating issues holding advanced degrees in many areas including toxicology, biochemistry, hydrobiology, environmental technology and statistics. Within the worldwide ARCADIS group the environmental expert team adds up to 2,800 specialists.
