The core of BEST consists of the 96 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) scattered across Europe. They are the factories of our events and homes of our members. There can only be one LBG in each university.
The main activities of a Local BEST Group are organising and promoting international public and internal events and local activities. The latter are generally directed to students of the local university. For instance, some LBGs organise job fairs or company presentations in their universities. Since almost all BEST activities are completely free of charge, Local BEST Groups also need to do fundraising to finance these projects.
All these imply a lot of work for BEST members (or BESTies as we are called). Nevertheless, we acquire a lot of knowledge that will help us not only as future engineers, but also as European citizens. What is more, we have the opportunity to learn about other cultures, make friends all over Europe and have a lot fun.
