“Empowered Diversity” – that’s the vision with which BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) sets out to make students aware of the differences and similarities between different cultures.

BEST is a non-political organisation of students of technology. There are 95 local BEST groups in 32 countries all over Europe, BEST Graz was founded in 2007.

BEST promotes intercultural communication between students, companies and universities in Europe. Students of technology gather international experience, consolidate their knowledge of English and make contacts with people from European countries. They have the opportunity to improve skills including project management and presentation at local and international events.

Fiona Draxler, President of BEST Graz for the academic year 2016/17

I have been involved in BEST for two years now and during this time I have travelled a lot in Europe, met interesting, friendly people from many different places, but also gathered a lot of experience in organising events and in executive positions.
