The Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) was founded in 1989 as a not-for-profit, non-political organisation that provides learning- and exchange opportunities for students all over Europe. BEST consists of 96 highly selective local BEST-groups in 34 countries. Through this network, a wide variety of activities, courses, career guidance, research, competitions and exchange opportunities are implemented.
For over 20 years BEST has also been involved in education-related projects through its Educational Involvement Department. Through questionnaires, symposia and the publication of reports and papers, BEST aims to increase students' awareness and involvment on educational matters and disseminate their input to relevant stakeholders in higher education. An overview of recent BEST-publications can be found here.
