How can companies play a role in BEST ?
BEST gathers 96 technical universities spread over 33 countries, where it acts as a bridge between universities, their students and the industries.
To do so, we develop different projects that aim to offer international complementary education events, training opportunities and career support to our members and all the students of the participating universities.
BEST Louvain-La-Neuve has for goal to create a well organised and powerful network with companies to bring all the partners in the « students – companies – university » triangle closer.
BEST’s main activity is to organise events. BEST Louvain-la-Neuve organises three main types of events, depending on their target group.
Each summer, BEST Louvain-La-Neuve organises a summer course on a different topic. The course gathers together around 20-30 students from all over Europe. The students attend lectures, put in practice what they have learnt and discover our country and its unique culture.
Academic courses are external events, which mean that all students in sciences and technologies from partner universities can participate. No need to be an active member of BEST.
Companies can for instance contribute by :
- Holding a lecture
- Proposing and leading a case study
- Providing a company visit
European BEST Engineering Competition
BEST Engineering Competitions are events where teams of students use their technical, social and communicative skills to compete in different categories: Team Design, Case Studies, Negotiation and Debates. Each Local BEST Group organizes its own Local Engineering Competition. The winners will compete on the National and Regional Competition. Finally, the final will gather winning teams from each country. This year, it will take place in Zagreb!
For this event, companies can contribute by :
- Holding a lecture
- Increasing its visibility
Case studies can be organised on different topics proposed by companies for a specific group of students of the local university. The amount of participants generally range from 20 to 50 participants.
Beside those events, BEST Louvain-La-Neuve is still open for any kinds of partnership (annual partnership etc.). Finally, BEST Louvain-La-Neuve strongly believes that a cooperation with companies is also very useful for both parties. Similar corporate relations in the past, both in the academic and the economic field, have resulted in employment of our members.
