A Brief History

Centuries of Education Experience

Founded in Amsterdam in 1805 by Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus, Brockhaus is the publisher of printed reference works in the German-speaking world for over two centuries.

Nationalencyklopedin (NE) is born

NE was born in 1980, when the Government of Sweden began working with publishers to produce a comprehensive, contemporary Swedish-language encyclopedia.

The project brought together 300 subject experts who, together with the editors, worked to build a modern, accurate, and comprehensive educational resource.
