Local BEST Group Erlangen
With the idea in mind to connect local students at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) with the European wide network of BEST, a group of internationally minded students from Erlangen set out to establish the first German Local BEST Group (LBG) in March 2012.

BEST, Board of European Students of Technology is a student driven non-profit and non-political organization. Since 1989 BEST provides communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities for students all over Europe.
97 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 34 countries are creating a growing, well organized, powerful, young and innovative student network. Over 3500 active members organize more than 100 international events per year.
BEST strives to help European students in technology orientated fields 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 events and educational symposia.
BEST lays at the heart of the triangle Students-Companies-Universities and brings these stakeholders together, through different projects throughout the year and all around Europe.
