Apply for the FAECTOR Research Project committee

This page is for applications to the FAECTOR Research Project committee 2022. Read more details about the FAECTOR Research Project here!

This committee is open for students currently in their second bachelor year (or third year for Bsc²).

The FAECTOR Research Project (FRP) is one of the oldest and most prestigious projects that FAECTOR offers its students. First organised in 1998, the project aims to mix business and pleasure through providing students with the opportunity to conduct econometric research at a company in the Netherlands, followed by an amazing three-week trip outside of Europe.

As part of the FRP committee, you are in charge of organising the entire project from start to finish. Directly after the formation of the committee, at the start of February, we will start on the acquisition of companies that provide the internships for all the participating students. In block 1 and 2 of the next year, the committee members will, together with the other participants, follow an eight-week, fulltime internship at one of the companies. This internship takes place during the minor period, and the students are awarded 12 ECTS upon completion. After the internship, we'll continue planning the trip, that takes place the next summer. This three-week long focuses on exploring all aspects of the visited countries. You will emerge yourself in cultural activities, experience unique local traditions, visit companies and universities and most importantly, have a lot of fun with fellow participants. The organisation of this trip, including the destination and activities, are completely up to you!

An overview of the committee timeline is presented below.
