Student Organisations

Informal Forum of International Students Organisations (IFISO) is an informal forum for officers of international non-governmental student organizations. IFISO sets a common platform of collaboration amongst international student organizations in order to strengthen their capacities through knowledge and information sharing and identification of common areas of involvement.

By this IFISO makes a great opportunity for EFPSA to cooperate with other NGO’s and also to start off with many examples when EFPSA is building new services or events. This platform gave EFPSA for example the opportunity to have a Skype chat with contactpersons of the European Students of Industrial Engineering and Management (ESTIEM) and the European Pharmaceutical Students’ Association (EPSA) about building an EFPSA Alumni Network.

The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA). For more than 60 years, IFMSA has existed and been led by medical students worldwide. The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) was founded in 1951. It is the world’s oldest and largest independent organization representing associations of medical students internationally. It currently maintains 123 National Member Organizations from more than 100 countries across six continents with over 1,2 million students represented worldwide. IFMSA is recognized as a non-governmental organization within the United Nations’ system and the World Health Organization and as well, it works with the World Medical Association.

IFMSA was created to impact the world and to empower its members in taking their vision and ideas, and making them a reality. IFMSA has inspired generations of medical students to develop the leadership abilities and skills to take on challenges and to improve the world around them in a crucial period of their career. Engaging in IFMSA encourages both professional and personal collaborations irrespective of geographical, social, cultural, religious, racial, sexual and political differences. As a result, future doctors are becoming more culturally aware and sensitive physicians.

PhD Talent is an association founded by volunteer PhD students and young PhDs interested in entrepreneurship and innovation, applied research, and transfer of concept and ideas. We collaborate with other PhD associations (from universities, labs or research institutions) to organize an international career fair in Paris for PhD students regardless their research field or academic background.

PhD Talent is more than an event organizer, we also aims to strengthen the relations between PhD students/graduates and companies through our two events: the Career Fair and the Challenge. PhD Talents’ statement is: ‘You have talent. We find those who care’.

EFPSA represents many psychology students and with them also many PhD students. In order to assist them in their search for a job, EFPSA cooperates with PhD Talent as Media Partners.

Zero Generations is a multidisciplinary team of professional trainers, with European and Worldwide NGO experience in leadership, international project management, training and consultancy; with special interests in healthcare, engineering and organisational development.

NGO’s, businesses and academic institutions require skills and competencies to grow. Due to limited accessibility to training, potential remains untapped. We aim at contributing to the empowerment and development of individuals and systems.

Moreover we want to establish a multi-disciplinary platform for creating, acquiring and transferring knowledge, and for developing skills to contribute to capacity strengthening on an international scale.

Zero Generations provides services in training, events’ facilitation, and organisational establishment. In addition we organise tailor made events, including training courses, teambuilding and teamwork events and conferences.

Zero Generations organizes events like Leadership Summer School (LSS), Parkinson Disease Summer School (PDSS) and Youth Trainers Academy (YTA), were EFPSA trainers are invited to deliver trainings and psychology students can join to follow trainings.
