CIDIC, following its concept of honoring the country hosting the presidency of the Council of the European Union, has organised its DEAC (Diplomatic, Economic, Academic & Cultural) days in Bucharest.
The delegation was welcome at the Belgian Embassy where H.E Mr. Thomas DEBAEKELANDT, the Belgian Ambassador in Bucharest and his wife offered a lovely walking dinner. On this occasion, following an idea of Prof . Jan CORNELIS and is determination to make it we had the thrilling pleasure to welcome a tenth of Romanian VUB Alumni, all of them occupying high positions in the local business world.
During the evening CIDIC together with the ambassador proceeded with the European Award ceremony in honour of :

The ceremony was followed by a networking well appreciated in an euphoric atmosphere.
The day after, under the auspices of UNICA (Network of Universities of the Capitals of Europe) represented by its Secretary General Mrs Kris DEJONCKHEERE, with the help of our Academic Attaché Prof. Jan CORNELIS, a workshop took place at the University of Bucharest.
After the signature of a membership agreement between the UB Confucius Institute and BACES – Brussels Academy for China and European Studies Prof. Jan CORNELIS opened the various lectures on the subject of “University international policy challenges benefits and pitfalls”.
