    Goals / Remit

    BEST, Board of European Students of Technology is a constantly growing non-profit and non-political organisation. Since 1989 we provide communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities for technology students all over Europe.

    86 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 30 countries are creating a growing, well organised, powerful, young and innovative student network.

    BEST strives to help European students of technology to become more internationally minded, by reaching a better understanding of European cultures and developing capacities to work on an international basis. Therefore we create opportunities for the students to meet and learn from one another through our academic and non-academic events and educational symposium. "Learning makes the master", but the final goal is a good working place, therefore we offer services like an international career centre to broaden the horizons for the choice on the job market.

    Complementary Information

    All of the groups have their own local boards and organise local and international BEST activities. Next to the local groups, we have a well developed international structure. The International Board is composed of 7 members: President, Treasurer, Secretary and 4 Vice-Presidents: for Services, for Projects, for Local Group Support and for Human Resources. The main tasks of the International Board are global coordination of BEST and its bodies and programs, execution of General Meetings decisions, promotion of aims and purpose of BEST and support for quality assurance of all BEST activities. Particular fields, tasks and programs of BEST are coordinated by international teams. These teams are groups of voluntary BEST members managing the day-to-day work and development of BEST. BEST members regularly meet for internal events where they can work on BEST-specific issues, receive training and strengthen their ties.

    Other activities

    European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a project organised by Board of European Students of Technology (BEST). The aim of EBEC is to raise awareness of the importance of non-formal education in the process of developing young people. Moreover, this way we strive to increase the participation of youth in the civic life and provide greater support for various forms of learning.

    The 2020 edition of the EBEC project consisted of 88 local, 15 national or regional competitions and 1 European final, planned to take place in Warsaw in August 2020. All levels consist of 2 categories: Case study and Team design. More than 6000 students around Europe were taking part in one of the local competitions and winning teams went to the next round. Themes for each category were brought up by our industrial partners, as well as organisations involved, and concern real problems of today's society. The winning teams of both categories were chosen by the jury, consisting of professors and company representatives.

    Being a multicultural event, it provides professional and private connections among students from all over Europe by: cooperating, exchanging ideas, giving solutions to up to date worldwide problems, sharing experience and knowledge without any kind of social, ethnic, sexual or political prejudice. Team building and social activities in international groups result in European students of technology becoming more internationally minded. The outcomes of the project will be published on BEST public website and presented in media and to all stakeholders involved. We believe that with the involvement of different local authorities and European, national and regional bodies in the project, our organisation will contribute to the improvement of the educational system and will encourage others to develop or support more activities dedicated to youth.
