A remarkable journey from a simple idea to the Europe’s biggest engineering competition.
It all started in ... Canada. There, student competitions were introduced in 1985, aiming for a collaboration among academia and industry.
BEST introduced the idea to Europe and the first EBEC Final took place in 2009 in Ghent, Belgium, with 80 participants from all over Europe.
Next year, in 2010, EBEC Final was in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. This edition of EBEC had 104 participants from 13 national/regional rounds.
EBEC Final 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey, was already considered to be the biggest engineering contest in Europe, with 104 participants.
In 2012 top European technical students competed at EBEC Final in Zagreb, Croatia, in 2 already standard categories: TeamDesign & CaseStudy.
EBEC Final 2013 was held in Warsaw, Poland. The event itself was supported by some of Europe's leading technological and educational brands.
... and this year, EBEC Final is coming to Riga, Latvia. Are you ready for new milestones? :)
