EFR involve consultancy project

Do you want to make a social impact? Are research and consultancy things you excel at and/or want more experience in? Then sign up for the EFR Involve Consultancy Project!

This year the EFR Consultancy Project will team up with the Bernard van Leer Foundation and work on a project as a part of their Urban95 initiative. We will look at the effect of nature on childhood development and investigate past policy implementations that made use of this effect. 

The project will start off in April. We will conduct three months of desk research from April through the end of June. After the desk research there is the possibility of a field trip to Israel, subject to the pandemic. After the research period, the team will finalize the report and present it to the Bernard van Leer Foundation in September. The preliminary research will take approximately 8-10 hours a week. More information can be found on www.efr.nl/involve

The Involve Consultancy Committee is looking for ambitious third year bachelor and master students to be part of our Involve team. Students from all academic backgrounds can apply, as long as you are motivated to be a part of our journey. The Involve Consultancy Committee is looking for a diverse team of researchers to make sure that all different perspectives are represented in our research. 

As a team member, you will get the opportunity to improve your research, writing and consultancy skills through the project itself and a training offered by Boer & Croon. Furthermore, you will get to know 20 other students and you might even have the chance to conduct field research if COVID-19 allows it. 

Are you curious about the project, our timeline and our possible field trip destination? Make sure to join our information session on March 23 at 20:00! You will get the opportunity to ask us all your questions about the project. If you have any questions before that, feel free to email us at involve@efr.nl. The application deadline extended to April 1st, and the interviews will take place from April 6th through April 8th. We will announce the selected students on April 9th.
