BICC&I Seminar: Indian Talent in Belgium

India House Leuven hosts the BICC&I business seminar that takes a closer look at the Indian talent in Belgium and how to make it work for the benefit of both parties.

On the one hand there is the growing number of Indian students completing their studies at Belgian Universities, and on the other hand we see a growing number of Indian companies investing in Belgium. In both cases cultural differences can be a hurdle and therefore this seminar will focus on the topic of Indian talent in Belgium
