Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) is a European non-profit, non-political and voluntary organisation. Born in 1989 to empower diversity between technology students, we have been creating a growing, dynamic, innovative and well-organised network. Through our services we aim to develop students and to shape the future leaders by encouraging communication, cooperation and self-development in more than 95 technical universities all over Europe.

We seek to create opportunities for Companies, Students and Universities to meet and work together. Each year, lots of local and international companies are involved in our projects. Thanks to a lot of opportunities for networking, our partners can engage students and have the chance to meet potential leaders and team-workers with exceptional knowledge, soft skills and a multicultural mindset.


BEST Torino is a member of the network since 1989.
Our mission is to develop students and let them grow up with us, providing amazing experiences in Italy and in Europe.


European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a 3 level, team-based competition, on 3 categories - Team Design, Innovative Design and Case Study.

In Team Design teams are solving tasks within a limited time and a limited availability of materials. The desired outcome is a device that has to perform the needed actions.

In Innovative Design the competitors should combine their creativity and knowledge to develop new technological designs or improve upon existing ones, with a focus in the technical, social, environmental, and economic impact of their design.

In Case Study category contestants need to provide a solution to a technical or a management problem and to present the outcome they came up with.

Teams are composed of 4 students from technology fields, regardless of status of their degree, and tasks they're solving are provided by BEST and company partners. The team which proves to be the most efficient, creative and successful solution at the end of competition finale is granted by “BEST Engineers of Europe” title.


EBEC has a jury of excellence made up of delegates chosen by the companies.
In this way the teams can be evaluated by competent people who work in leading national and international companies.

In EBEC Italy 2022 the jury is composed by:

Filippo Veglia (TAU)
Valerio Fornari (Nuvola)
Ludovico Massafra (Nuvola)
Fabio Castino (Lilitech)
Simona Genovese (Lilitech)
Florencia Frangapane (Birra Madama)
