The BDA Diplomatic Platform provides spaces for networking, discussions, knowledge transfer, and informal gatherings to civil servants and embassy staff wanting to exchange ideas outwith the loaded and hectic settings of the office and official occasions. The platform also provides opportunities for diplomatic staff to meet business people to explore areas of common interest.

As a University body, the BDA is ideally placed to provide the context within which there can be free exchange of information, and an atmosphere in which individuals can meet without immediately needing to further the interests of their country or their organisation. For information about forthcoming activities, or to be put on the platform mailing list, contact bda@vub.be.
