Founded in 1973, European Omnibus Survey (EOS)-TNS Opinion was the first company in Europe with the single focus on administering multi-national political and social surveys. Since then, our company has been involved in all major international studies on behalf of international institutions. We have 38 years of experience in multi-country surveys; in-house tools for international research; focus on technology and innovation; fully integrated network; international dedicated team (11 nationalities covering 3 continents). TNS’ research is carried out on behalf of government bodies and international institutions and frequently forms the basis for policy-making. Therefore, we ensure that all phases of the survey process, from sampling methodology and survey design to final data delivery, are carried out according to the highest research standards. TNS Opinion, in its capacity as multi-country surveys manager, has undertaken numerous public opinion surveys in Europe and other regions, covering different target groups, ranging from general public to elite surveys and business leaders and using different methodologies, including online interviews.
