From 16th to 19th of October, Pakrac is going to be hosting the Regional Meeting of European students of technology from universities across Central and Southern Europe. The main organizer of this meeting is the student association BEST Zagreb, which has a long tradition of organizing meetings and seminars for students throughout Europe.
95 Local BEST Groups (LBGs) in 33 countries are creating a growing, well organised, powerful, young and innovative student network. The LBGs are divided into 11 regions. Our South Region is comprised of Local Groups from Central and Southern Europe. Specifically, universities from Belgrade, Ljubljana, Veszprém, Timišoara, Mostar, Novi Sad, Budapest and Zagreb. BEST Zagreb is going to organize a Regional Meeting taking place in the mountain hostel Omanovac in Pakrac. This event will bring together about eighty students from our region, as well as members of the international BEST board and trainers.
A Regional Meeting is a short and intensive event where technology students and future engineers meet and make important decisions concerning BEST’s future work as a student association. Moreover, they deal with educational and scientific matters and organize a variety of workshops and training sessions in order to develop intelligent or “soft skills”. Regional Meetings are organized twice a year so students can prepare for the General Assembly which takes place in the beginning of spring.
At the moment, we are in hotel Dubrovnik in Zagreb, at the official closing ceremony of EBEC 2012! In just one hour we will find out who are the BEST engineers in Europe. Stay tunned at ebec.best.eu.org/ebec/livestream
