For the 119 participants of European BEST Engineering Competition Final and all the people who worked for one year on this international project, the Journey to Belgrade comes to an end.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Final Round of European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is being completed today with the Oficial Closing Day held in Diplomatic Club. EBEC Final is being conducted between the 1st and the 10th of August in Belgrade by BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) with the presence of 119 leading engineering students from all over Europe and with the support of many partners and authorities. Today is once again the time to celebrate the successful organisation of EBEC Final and most importantly the creation of new ideas, memories and opportunities for the future.
The Oficial Closing Day will start with a show, where the participants of Case Study will present the
ideas they developed in the competition and the Team Design teams will display the prototypes they
constructed. The rest of the Closing Day will be held in Diplomatic Club, starting with the Company
Day, where our partner companies will have the chance to connect with the participants and discuss
on possible common opportunities for the future. During the Closing Ceremony that will follow, the
people that coordinated this project will close the event, memories will be shared and of course the
winners will be announced.
For the last 10 days, the participants had the chance to work with their teams on creative and
cutting-edge tasks. Two out of the four Case Study tasks were provided by the task partners European
Patent Ofice and Eaton, while the irst of the two Team Design challenges was developed in cooperation with Autodesk. The tasks were designed in such a way that urged participants to come up
with original and creative ideas, to develop their teamwork and leadership skills and to advocate for
their ideas in front of accomplished professors and professionals from the aforementioned companies.
