Context of the BICC&I & Emirates  Scriptum Award

Since 2006 BICC&I extended on a yearly basis the "BICC&I Scriptum Award" for the best contribution to bilateral socio-economic exchanges between Belgium, as a Gateway to Europe, and India.

A jury composed of professors and high level CEO’s decided on who will receive the Scriptum Award.

The winner was rewarded with 2 return tickets to India offered by our airline partner and 1000 euro in cash.
