Policy from the board of the K.N.P.S.V. 2018-2019

As 116th candidate board of the Royal Dutch Pharmaceutical Student Association (K.N.P.S.V.), we use the objectives document and the covenant in the year 2018-2019 as a general guideline for the policy. In addition, we have set personal main goals with regard to ‘General‘, ‘Fraternization’, ‘Activities’ and ‘International’.


We continue the work on the archiving of the analogue and digital archive. Because of the high costs of warehouse Oasis in Alblasserdam, we strive to move  the analogue archive to a different location. For the archiving we will take out twelve days with the full board.

The new promotion guidelines of the K.N.P.S.V. will be applied to all committees of the K.N.P.S.V. The committees will be informed in advance of the guidelines concerning the promotion. The promotion is done in consultation with the board. We will also look at the statistics of the website, Facebook, Instagram and member mail. The results are used to supplement the promotion guidelines.

With the trial membership of the Association of Chemistry Students at the Free University (VCSVU), the K.N.P.S.V. board will visit more activities. In consultation with the Council of Praesides (RvP), it was decided to let one permanent person go to one department with alternating members of the board so that members have a fixed face from the K.N.P.S.V.


With the trial membership of VCSVU at the K.N.P.S.V., we want to ensure that the members of the VCSVU can become more acquainted with the K.N.P.S.V. We will organize an introductory activity in collaboration with VCSVU for only the VCSVU students.

Before the start of the General Assembly (GA), an update is sent to all officials and interested parties. Members who are interested in an update can sign up via a Google Forms. We will add an informative piece about the course of the GA with every update.


An interdisciplinary activity, in the form of a lecture/workshop, will be organized for the members of the K.N.P.S.V. To this end, an interface will be sought with a study that is not aimed at health care.

We will continue the current collaboration with the organization of the Pharmacy Olympiad. We are going to look at the future role of the K.N.P.S.V. in the organization of this event. We also want to look at the possibility of organizing a parallel olympiad for bio pharmaceutical students.


More and more international members are joining the K.N.P.S.V. To involve these members more in the K.N.P.S.V. we are going to set up an internationalization protocol. The internationalization protocol serves as advice for the association.

We want to bring the projects of the European Pharmaceutical Students ‘Association (EPSA) and the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) to the attention of the study advisors of the departments. This allows them to refer interested students to the K.N.P.S.V. We also want to look at the possibility of obtaining credits for the Student Exchange Program (SEP) for students from all cities. We want to expand the social program of SEP students in the Netherlands by setting up a SEP working group.

In order to make EPSA and IPSF more familiar with the members, we will provide updates on the developments within EPSA and IPSF. This will be done in the form of promotional films of events and updates are incorporated into blogs.
