In the spring of 1991, at the initiative of a group of students enthusiastic and eager to bring change both in their lives and in the lives of their colleagues, the local group BEST Timisoara was born. For 30 years they have wanted to offer students the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally, through the events they organize. Thus, with each course and event addressed to students from all over Europe, they aim to make known the culture, history and lifestyle specific Romania.
