Third participation update

Two weeks ago the macro research started and tomorrow the presentations will start. In this mailing we give you extra information about the coming term and research related topics.


Bowling on April 1st
Thursday April 1st had a bowling match (Bowling Enschede). There we had a small introduction round, introducing the committee and all participants. Who are you, why did you want to participate, etc.? We hope everybody had a good time! You can find the photo’s on


Weekly walk-in moment
Every Monday from 11am till 1pm Mark Kazemier is present in the Inter-Actief board room. Questions, dilemmas and problems can be discussed face to face during these meetings. Of course you are still free to e-mail ( or call (0615618091, if urgent).


Go/No-Go decision
Every study tour has a few nerve breaking dates. The one coming upon us now is the “Go/No-Go” deadline: Tuesday 20th of April the study tour. 50% of the tours finances have to be available. In practice this means we need to have obtained 11 contract research assignments. Currently there are 5 signed contracts, 5 are in negotiation and 4 serious leads. Further, Niels and Martin are talking to 94 other companies for contract research and sponsorships. We hope the Inter-Actief board decides to give us a GO!
