The International Research by Students Programme (IRSP) allows third-year bachelor and master students of IRIO to conduct research for a multinational corporation, an NGO or a (foreign) government. The aim of IRSP is to let senior students apply their knowledge in the working sphere. The committee attaches sponsors of research projects to the programme, selects participants and keeps all parties involved and informed during the process of the project. In order to begin contacting potential partners as soon as possible, the committee is already formed before summer. In November, we will hold our IRSP Drinks where interested students have the chance to inform themselves about partners before applying as research participants. Towards the end of the academic year, we will present the results of our research at our second IRSP Drinks. Additionally, a little booklet that summarises our work of the entire year will be published.
IRSP Committee positions: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Commissioner of Corporate Relations (3x), PR and Board Representative.
Commissioner of Corporate Relations: Person in charge of being in contact with external parties, such as companies and NGO's.
