What is BEST?

BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) is a non-profit, non-political organisation. Founded in 1989, we provide communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities across all over Europe.


97 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 34 countries are creating a growing, well organised, powerful, young and innovative student network.


BEST strives to help European students of technology to become internationally minded, by reaching a better understanding of the 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. We also offer services like an international career centre to broaden the horizons for the choice on the job market.


Our priority is to offer high quality services for students all over Europe. Thus, we manage to bring all the partners in the "student-company-university" triangle closer.
