Local BEST group Maribor
We are part of the international organization BEST (Board of European Students of Technology), which focuses on student’s voluntarism and cooperation. We make possible for students of the University of Maribor to participate internationally in variety of different events throughout Europe.
We began our work in 2001, as an organizational unit of the Student Organization of the University of Maribor (ŠOUM). Later we became full members of the international organization BEST in 2003, at the General Assembly in Belgium. With the support of ŠOUM, the Department for International Cooperation, we are constantly increasing the recognisability of our organization and expanding the scope of activities for international, as well as domestic students under the patronage of the University of Maribor.
Currently, BEST Maribor consists of around 30 active members. Acting voluntarily and using our motivation, we organize numerous successful international and domestic projects with the purpose of education, socializing, discovering new cultures and establishing new connections and acquaintances.
