History

  • 1975 saw the foundation of ICON-INSTITUT Gesellschaft für angewandte Sozialforschung, Beratung, Planung und Entwicklung mbH. The company's aim was to provide consulting services in development aid projects.

  • GET German Education and Training GmbH was the first subsidiary with a specialised profile, and has worked in the field of education since 1987.

  • In 1996 the establishment of ICON-INSTITUT Gesellschaft für Berufliche Bildung und Training mbH followed in Aachen.

  • Two years later ARCOTRASS, a company from Frankfurt focusing on rural and regional development, joined the ICON group.

  • In early 2001, two departments of the former ICON-INSTITUT GmbH became autonomous: ICON-INSTITUT Public Sector and ICON-INSTITUT Informationssysteme.

  • The remaining part of the organisation now concentrates on Private Sector Development.

  • With these steps the long process of the original company's development has been completed. The result is six competent specialised institutes which together call themselves the ICON-INSTITUTE group.
