8 BEST in TREE Events on Education: – B6: BEST Academics and Companies, Service Science and Undergraduate Research, Brussels, March 2007 Acces to higher education and undergraduate research, Ljubljana, May 2005 – C8: The role of extra curricular activities in the formation of Engineers, Rome Tor-Vergata, July 2005 BEST Academic and Companies, Istanbul, March 2006 BEST EduCo EoE BEST in TREE Outcomes

9 BEST in TREE Outcomes of Events on Education in other SIGs: – D6: Ethics and Sustainable Development in Engineering Education, Madrid, March 2006 – A8: Engineering Demand and offer in Europe, Milan, April 2007 BEST EduCo EoE BEST in TREE Outcomes

10 SIG C8: The role of extracurricular activities in EE – Potential of such activities: self-confidence, team work, leadership,etc. social skills, competent engineers complementary education – Key role from universities: flexibility for students involved (e.g. exams and attendance) – Recognition (good practices): UK Spain BEST EduCo EoE BEST in TREE Outcomes
