Below you can read all about the many committees the CDL has to offer. If there are certain requirements for the committee, for example in what year you are in, this will be mentioned at the committees it concerns.


Buurlandenreiscommissie (BRC) Organise an unforgettable trip for the first and second year students to Belgium or Germany with a committee existing of four to five second year students. Visiting companies and universities is the main focus, but it is alternated with cultural visits and doing fun things together! In 2020 this trip was to Germany for the first time. This committee is for second years only. This year the BRC consists of: Julian, Romy, Kane, Bonny and Thomas. https://www.chemischdispuutleiden.nl/storage/app/media/BRC.jpeg Sibling Day Committee This is the day where you can bring your siblings to the university and show them what you are actually doing at the university.

Anything is possible: a great lunch, a lottery, a sponsor run or something even more epic! This year the CollectCie consists of: Rick, Edie, Minka and Lucie. https://www.chemischdispuutleiden.nl/storage/app/media/Commissies/CollectCie_19.jpg Chimica Editorial The Chimica Editorial does everything concerning the CDL’s magazine: the Chimica Acta Lugduni. The committee strives to keep the magazine of high quality, containing articles about activities, scientific articles, photo pages and updates on the CDL.

The Chimica comes out three times a year for CDL members and there is one special edition for ‘buitenleden’. Throughout the year, the committee is not very busy. However, when a deadline is coming close, the committee will have a ‘klusessie’ (working session) at the boardroom to put the magazine together.
