A Little About Our History

Schlesinger Group Spain began its journey as Bloc de Ideas. BDI was founded in 1992 and, rapidly became a trusted choice for data collection and research services in Spain. In 2002, building on its success, BDI opened its first focus group facility in Barcelona in 2005.

In 2017, BDI Research officially joined the Schlesinger Group as BDI Research. Through its client-centric approach, BDI Research continues to deliver outstanding solutions for its clients in Spain and worldwide. In 2019, BDI Research acquired ThinkPhar, a leading qualitative healthcare recruiting and insights provider,  expanding BDI’s healthcare solutions in Spain.

Our clients now benefit from the collaboration, resources, population access, partnerships and early adoption of innovative technologies that come with being part of Schlesinger Group.

For 2020 and beyond, we continue our journey as Schlesinger Group Spain and part of Schlesinger Europe, collaborating with our international colleagues to meet your local and global research objectives.
