IRP for Companies

The International Research Project is a non-profit consultancy project which offers high-quality, customized research services to companies with international operations or have international expansion plans.

The Marketing Association Erasmus University Rotterdam (MAEUR) has already been organizing the International Research Project (IRP) for twenty years. Research teams have been providing multidisciplinary research services to a large clientele. The quality of research is ensured by the supervision of the Erasmus University professors and the confidentiality is guaranteed.

Our team of researchers consists of Erasmus University’s top students with the motivation and experience that ensures high-quality project execution. This is why our work will always contain fresh academic insights. The International Research Project works on a non-profit basis, our budget will solely be made to cover necessary costs such as transportation, accommodation, communication as well as administrative overhead.
