Who are we?

Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) is an international, nonpolitical, nonprofit association founded in 1989 and located in 93 of the best European universities across 34 countries. With over 3.300 members, our activities reach anually 1.500.000 European students.

Our objectives consist of:
  • Providing an alternate educational environment to the students so they can develop soft skills and teamwork abilities that prove to be useful in our actual world.
  • Bringing together the 3 vertices of the UNIVERSITY-STUDENT-BUSINESS triangle. 
  • Supporting the beginning of a professional career facilitating the first contact between students and companies.

We accomplish this goal through different events, such as engineering competitions, workshops and conferences that allow companies to have an implication in the education of students while approaching students to the business world.
