Alumni news

As BEST is growing and getting older, another process that naturally follows is taking place - there are more and more BEST alumni all around Europe. As the BEST Alumni network is expanding, there are more and more ideas and projects starting and becoming reality.

In this section you can find announcements of upcoming alumni events all around Europe (to which you can apply through the Private Area of BEST) and get updated on activities and projects of BEST Alumni and the AlumniNet. Apart from this, you can also find the AlumniTimes which brings you up to catch up with everything you need to know.

AlumniNet wish you a good reading! Remember that you can also post more news.
