Research Project Maastricht (RPM), an initiative supported by Maastricht University, aims to successfully conduct company specific research in emerging economies on a non-profit basis. The project is carried out annually and aspires to meet the unique and specific demands of Dutch firms, varying from small- and medium sized firms to multinational enterprises. RPM is best suited to companies with international ambitions and a global orientation. Each year since 1989, RPM has performed research in emerging economies including Brazil, India, Singapore and China. This year the focus will be on the emerging and developing economy of Mexico.
RPM consists of a multi-disciplinary team with ten highly skilled students in the final phase of their studies. The team members are carefully selected from a large pool of applicants and possess the technical knowledge, as well as the cultural and linguistic skills required to successfully work in an international business environment. The team members’ competences range from legal to social to economic and business studies.
In previous years, RPM has performed various types of research, including market and sector analyses, competitive analyses, identification of investment opportunities, and searching for new distribution channels or possible new business partners. In order to ensure the highest quality research, the current economic, political, legal and cultural environments of Mexico will be analyzed extensively. Furthermore, preparatory company specific research is conducted in the Netherlands before departure to Mexico.
Team departure is planned for the end of December 2020. Accordingly, from January to April 2021, the RPM team is eager to investigate, explore and evaluate opportunities for your business in Mexico.
Research Project Maastricht conducts tailored research in which it aspires to closely meet the unique demands of your company.
