The European Student Think Tank (EST) is an organisation for and by ambitious students.

You are the main contact for the Executive Board, a representative of EST in your country and an important part of the growing success of a young organisation. You will be responsible for promoting EST in your country and building a network of student contributors. Basically, you are the face of EST in your own country.
