  1. I’m the parent of a gifted 15year old girl -already a member of Mensa- from Greece. Do you organise or can advise of any summer courses within Europe especially for gifted children?
    Tried to ask ECHA, but their email doesn’t seem to work.

    • Hi Stelios

      As far as I’m aware, there isn’t yet a Europe-wide database of summer schools and similar learning opportunities for gifted learners (though I for one have certainly argued for the creation of one). Such a service might eventually be one outcome of the EU Talent initiative led by Hungary. In the meantime, can I invite readers with suggestions to post them in the comments below? I will also post your query on Twitter and let you know the outcome.

  2. Hi Everyone
    Thanks for all your posts. They are very interesting. I am leading for the 4th year a gifted education program in Romania and we have faced a lot of challenges. I totally agree with you when you propose a EU wide network. There is one being created right now, bit it is not functional – we don’t share anything in between the organizations. It’s at this link http://talentcenterbudapest.eu/talentmap

    We can develop a Summer Gifted Program in Romania.
    So Stelios, if you’re interested, let us know. We have gorgeous summer schools, where children thrive, and very dedicated trainers with a lot of experience.
    So, I think we should develop our local networking based on the needs and wants of the kids, and not wait for ECHA or anyone else do it for us ;)
