International Research Project

DESTINATION 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it has been decided that there will not be an International Research Project in 2021. Hopefully in the academic year of 2021-2022 there will be another project.

ABOUT US

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.

DISCOVER

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.

OUR GOAL

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!


A word from former clients


I have experienced the collaboration with IRP as positive and professional. Before and during the journey we have had good contacts and this resulted in a high quality end report, which conclusions can be put in practice.

IRP has conducted a study for us into the possibilities of our organization in Asia. In addition to the pleasant cooperation with the students, they have shown a very professional approach – both in preparation and during the on-site research – which has led to an excellent final report and presentation. The results will definitely help us further in our business!
