Pan-European Support for Gifted Education

Here is a note dating from 2010 on the European Council for High Ability (ECHA)

ECHA has biennial conferences, most recently in Munster, Germany in 2012 and Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2014. The 2016 Conference is scheduled for March 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

    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 😉
