Map of BEST LBGs in Europe

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.

96 Local BEST Groups(LBGs) in almost 33 countries are creating a growing, well organised, powerful, young and innovative student network. (check this interactive map).

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 courses 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.

History

How it began

Intention to constitute LBG (Local Best Group) at 26. October 1992 was lawful by federal department of Czechoslovakia Federal republic (Slovak republic now) establish branch of BEST on Slovakia. The first was BEST Bratislava at Slovak Technical University. Intention to constitute a LBG in Kosice on second biggest technical university on Slovakia (Technical University of Kosice) started at 3.August 1994 by Milos Los, but in this age was official proposal from government that new LBG Kosice can perform just under LBG Bratislava. But for this process was necessary change statute of LBG Bratislava. Another chance was create a substantive statute for LBG Kosice. It was more acceptable way. New statute of LBG Kosice was created and at 22. November 1994 also LBG officially registered. First president and simultaneous statutory was Milos Los.
