The "Euroschool on Exotic Beams" has been a meeting place for graduates, doctoral students and young postdocs for a quarter of a century. Through high-ranked speakers, a good choice of relevant topics and attractive lectures, the school is ideally suited to prepare young scientists for their research work, e.g. at GSI and FAIR. The anniversary event at the end of August 2018 was celebrated at the University of Leuven in Belgium with a special symposium.
