ABOUT ECHA

European Council for High Ability

Throughout Europe there is a growing awareness of the needs of our most able individuals; in recent years increasing interest in this area of child development has generated new forms of practice in education, numerous research programmes and studies, a growth in the number of societies for parents of highly able children and, indeed, a growth in concern for highly able people of all ages.

ABOUT ETSN

European Talent Support Network

The European Talent Support Network is a continuously transforming and developing system, with the European Talent Centres that are its hubs and the so-called European Talent Points being nodes acting as equal members. It was officially founded on 29 September 2015, in the Brussels European Parliament building, in the presence of senior EU officials and MEPs.
