Quem somos A Nossa História

Somos uma organização não governamental, apolítica e sem fins lucrativos em constante crescimento. Mais do que uma associação que promove e organiza atividades para estudantes, o BEST tem o objectivo de reforçar a ligação entre universidades, estudantes e empresas.

Events what we do

BEST Inside View is a pioneer initiative organised by BEST Lisbon, in collaboration with Instituto Superior Técnico and Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. The project, inspired by the job shadowing concept, allows students to join a professional from their area throughout a work day, watching their daily routine closely. This project shows the students what they might do when they enter the job market.

The EBEC, European BEST Engineering Competition is one of Europe's biggest engineering competitions. This event is known for its continuous 24-hour format, in which participants are tested in one of the two existing categories: Team Design and Case Study. In the category of Team Design, each team must solve a technical challenge by constructing a prototype with limited time and resources. At the end of the competition, the team with the best solution for and portotype is declared the winner. The category of Case Study consists of the presentation of creative and innovative solutions to technical or management problems in limited time. The winners of the local phase of each country, in our case the EBEC Lisbon, go on to the 2nd phase - the national competition (Portugal).

The Lisbon BEST Engineering Competition (LBEC) is a pioneering initiative of BEST Lisbon. Inspired by the success of the European Best Engineering Competition (EBEC), the LBEC applies the same format to a smaller scale competition, which counts with the collaboration of a single company that decides the format, the date and the theme of competition. The company can also choose its target audience, thus making LBEC a highly personalized service which allows students to involve themselves in an event where they take on challenges in their areas of interest, while developing solutions to real world problems and strengthening the relations between students and the company. The competition format may be similar to the EBEC, ie, consisting of a Case Study, Team Design or any other format that the company proposes. In Case Study, teams of students are tested on their theoretical knowledge to find solutions to a proposed problem. In Team Design, teams are challenged to build a prototype to solve a problem of a technical nature, with a budget and limited resources. In both cases the duration of the competition is variable, usually taking either a morning or an afternoon.
In addition to the diversity of local events, BEST seasonally organizes short courses throughout Europe. Looking for an opportunity to visit the European city of your dreams? BEST has 33 member countries, 95 Local BEST Groups and thousands of students who, like you, have their sights set on Europe. The 4 seasons accompany the 4 opportunities, per year, that you have to live this experience: Autumn Season - Winter Season - Spring Season - Summer Season. All courses have an academic component, but also recreational activities that allow you to meet and interact with different cultures. Regarding costs, your participation involves the payment of a fee (variable, with a maximum value of €45) which guarantees your accommodation, meals and transportation during the realization of events.
