Places we will be visiting


Finland is located in Northern Europe. Its long border with the Baltic Sea makes it an interesting place for the maritime industry. It has long felt the influence of Russia which still can be seen within the country. Finland houses some of the most technologically advanced companies within the maritime industry.


Italy is located in Southern Europe. It was the homeland of the Romans from which you can still see remnants within the country. Bordered by The Mediterranean Sea, its long coastline is favourable for both trade and the maritime industry.

Our goals

Our study trip will include different levels of companies in which the students can broaden their knowledge. There has to be a mix between starting and longer running companies, between small and big companies and between high- and low-tech companies.

The main goal of the study trip is to introduce students to the maritime industry and other related industries on an international level. The study trip will offer several examples of maritime industry that cannot be found in the vicinity of The Netherlands.

The study trip also aims to introduce the students to different cultures and make them aware of the differences between the Netherlands and those cultures. Therefore, in at least one of the two countries it is aimed to visit an educational institution. Furthermore, cultural excursions will be organized next to the company visits.
