Vereniging Nederlandse Industrie Apothekers – NIA

De Vereniging van Nederlandse Industrie Apothekers (NIA), established on the 16th of April 1955, is a professional association of pharmacists who work in the pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical wholesale or affiliated companies. The NIA aims to represent the interests of its members and to promote the industrial pharmacy in all its facets. The NIA maintains contacts with international organizations such as the FIP (Federation International Pharmaceutique) and the EIPG (European Industrial Pharmacy Group).

Startende en Talentvolle Industriële Pharmaceuten – STIP
STIP stands for Starting and talented industrial pharmacists. STIP is a section of the NIA. The STIP-network has been realized by two young pharmacists with the aim to unite starting pharmacists (0-5 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry) to exchange experiences and knowledge. In addition, STIP wants to offer pharmacy and (bio-) pharmaceutical sciences students a platform to get in contact with the pharmaceutical industry. In short, a dynamic, talented and energetic group!
