What is "BEST"?

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 students all over Europe.

88 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 31 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 symposia. “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.

Finally, here comes final stage which takes place in spesific LBG in all around the Europe.

Case Study

Case Study category consists of analysing and solving a real–life problem with no actual construction of any device or assembling of materials, but by using the information given to develop hypothetical solutions. In the end all teams shall give a presentation explaining the solutions they’ve come up with.

Innovative Design

Innovative Design category is related to researching/brainstorming on existing technologies, ways to modify/reinvent and innovate them, making a planning and detailing about how to implement the invention they come up with.
