Rome – “A heady mix of haunting ruins, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy’s hot-blooded capital is one of the world’s most romantic and inspiring cities.” – Lonely Planet


We are happy to announce that our destination for this year’s European Study Research Fall 2017 will be ROME! From the 25th of November until the 2nd of December, a group of 25 students, 6 committee members and 2 professors will visit the capital city of Italy. During the trip we will visit interesting local and multinational companies, discover the beautiful city of Rome, the culture and explore the nightlife. Rome was ranked as one of the most visited cities in the European Union, but also in the world, due to the large variety of archaeological and artistic treasures.

European Study Research Rome offers you great opportunities to broaden your horizon and learn a lot in addition to your studies. It is a great opportunity to make new friends and at the same time improve your research skills and visit companies in Rome. Furthermore, you will be exploring a beautiful city full of cultural heritage and nightlife.

As the capital city, Rome houses not only local businesses, but also a share of multinationals, which is a great condition for conducting significant research. This trip’s research theme will be: ‘Former European Epicentre: Reboosting Economic Performance’. We will formulate advice for e.g. businesses and government on 5 different topics. More information about the research topics can be found under ‘theme’ on the left.

Our adventure starts with an opening dinner and in the seven weeks prior to the trip we will have dinners, lectures, socials and research work in order to prepare for Rome. Every Monday there will be a lecture, a dinner and a social. After we return from our trip, there will be two more of these evenings. We will conclude the project with an ending dinner and social.

The total cost of joining will only be €175,-, which includes the plane ticket, accommodation and transportation during our stay.
