The National Knowledge Network for Debt (Landelijk Kennisnetwerk Schulden, LKS) aims to promote the further improvement of teaching and research in the field of debt across the whole of our country. The network aims to achieve this by encouraging teachers and researchers to exchange knowledge, experiences, research results and so on.
The National Knowledge Network for Debt is a network of teachers and researchers that is involved in developing and implementing teaching and research in the field of debt. The network organizes meetings and conferences. Its shareholders include the NVVK, HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and Hogeschool van Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
The activities organized through the network depend on the requirements of those who take part. An annual conference will always be held. Last year the first such conference was held at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. Next year, the Hogeschool van Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences will organize this event. In addition to the annual conference, other activities are also organized. These include a series of meetings concerning specific themes. Working visits or meetings for students are other possibilities.
At a later stage, we will also look at the opportunities for initiating joint research.
This website will very soon provide a list of meetings, relevant news, educational materials and news about ongoing or completed research work. The website also provides information about its members in the form of personal profiles. This will allow people to find others with whom they can share relevant information. In addition, the Knowledge Network also publishes a digital newsletter and answers questions from within the network. The Professional Practice of Law research group, debts and debt collection research line, plays a facilitating role in this, together with Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and Hogeschool van Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
The driving forces behind the network are currently Rianne van der Weijden (lecturer / researcher, Hogeschool van Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences), Petrick Glasbergen (lecturer / researcher, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen), Marc Anderson (lecturer / researcher, HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht) and Nadja Jungmann (professor, HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht).
