The history of BEST began in April 1989, when the idea of an international, nonpolitical and non-profit organization was born with the intention of connecting Europe.




Twenty-eight years later, BEST is the sum of 94 BEST local groups. Our work has an impact on students, universities, and industry collaborators in 32 countries across Europe. BEST is constantly growing, always trying to offer a complementary transversal learning to classroom training,  all the work is done by students for students with the aim of broadening the horizons of technology students.

A dream come true


Covering 32 countries and reaching 1,300,000 students of technology, BEST has become a considerable European organization. There are 94 local groups scattered across Europe that form the core of the organization. Each group is present in exactly one university, and has its own local board of directors, its own practices, events, culture and customs. As pieces of a puzzle, each of them has its own shape and place in BEST: The groups are connected to each other by common BEST values. 

This connection powers BEST as a strong organization, offering services to European students of technology.


Our values

Flexibility

We are not afraid of change, we are open to different opinions and prepared to face and respond quickly to new horizons.

Improvement

We are not satisfied, we always seek to raise the level in everything we do, it is always possible to improve and in pursuit of that goal is our success.

Friendship

We value friendship above all, we strive to build good personal relationships and work as a team in all BEST activities.

Fun

We love everything we do and we strive to make our activities a pleasant experience for all those who participate in them.

Learning

We value everything we learn with the experience of being involved in our skills and strive to learn as much as we can from every aspect of our work.

MISSION: POTENTIAL DIVERSITY

We provide complementary training through the BEST Courses and Competitions giving added value to regulated education. We provide a structured way for engineering students to give input on their education and, therefore, to be offered the option of improving their education. Students have the opportunity to develop their career prospects through BEST Career Support (BCS) services and learn and put into practice skills for their professional development and reach their full potential.

VISION: DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS

In all our activities we try to give students a new perception of different ways of thinking, reaching a better understanding of other cultures and societies. Our events give students the opportunity to develop their ability to work in a culturally diverse environment so that they can improve their social skills.
