International Research Project (IRP)

The International Research Project (IRP) is the most exciting international study trip that has been a longstanding event organised by FAECTOR. This trip (actually more of a journey) is focused on ambitious second-year students of Econometrics that are interested in widening and enriching the perspective of their study. 

This study project consists of two parts. The first part is an internship, which will be arranged by FAECTOR at companies that are interesting for econometricians. Under supervision of a contact within that company and a teacher from the Econometric Institute a complete research report will be written about a topic that is relevant for the company.

After the valuable working experience you will be rewarded with an amazing trip that ventures to a place outside the European Union every year. On this trip the focus lies on experiencing cultural activities, absorbing all of the famous and unique locations, companies and local universities the destination has to offer. Of course the local nightlife has to be enjoyed as well and there will be time for relaxing moments; something a good summer holiday has to have.International Research Project: Destinations
