Commissions

Current commisions:

The Working Group UMC (former Working Group BIG) has been created by PNN, including representatives of all eight University Medical Centers, with the aim to establish an appropriate exception for BIG-registered PhD candidates  to meet the new criteria for BIG re-registration. Other issues concerning medical PhD candidates are also addressed within this Working Group.

In the past, PNN organized the National PhD day, in which the Supervisor of The Year award played an important role. However, more and more local PhDs were organized and a national day was no longer necessary. However, PNN wants to uphold the tradition of the SoTY award and will be handed out at a separate meeting.

Self-help books are available for all sorts of themes, including research, writing articles or the PhD track itself. Reading all the books would cost you your full PhD trajectory, which is why PNN helps you by reviewing books.

Former commissions:

  • Committee integrity

This committee focuses on the “gray area” between fraud and integrity when conducting scientific research, as well as the work to be performed by PhDs around data management and methodology and its effects on integrity.
