“Empower Diversity – Develop Students”


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

97 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 34 countries are creating a growing, well organised, powerful, young and innovative student network.Over 4000 active members organise more than 100 events per year reaching almost 1.7 million students.

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.

BEST lays at the heart of the triangle Students-Companies-Universities. We bring these stakeholders together, through different projects all over the year and all around Europe. Our priority is to offer high quality services for students all over Europe.
