With great pleasure, the International Research Project (IRP) has successfully been conducting research around the world since 1990. Each year, a multi-disciplinary team of eighteen ambitious and dedicated students goes abroad to explore the opportunities for Dutch companies in a foreign market.


Our team conducts high quality research to assist you in exploring your international opportunities. In 8 weeks we perform thorough desk- and field research and present you our final advice report.

Our project is fully customized to your needs and supervised by several renowned professors from the University of Amsterdam and the  VU University Amsterdam.


We believe a globalized world offers countless opportunities for developing businesses and people.

Through this project we strive to enlarge the internationalization of every organization in the Netherlands and to realize a bridge between academic and professional life for ambitious graduate students.

Explore your global opportunities!
