On the 17th October the ECHA Accreditation Committee (http://echa.info/101-formation-of-a-european-talent-support-network-adopted-by-the-general-assembly-of-echa) had its second meeting during the Understanding Gifted Children conference (http://www.dcu.ie/news/2014/oct/s1014l.shtml) organised by CTY Ireland (http://www.giftedkids.ie/ctyi.html) in Dublin.
Dear ECHA Members! It is our great pleasure to introduce our new ECHA homepage to you. It is especially helpful that our new website became ready before our next Conference in Ljubljana. (You can send the registration to this exciting meeting under the Registration tab.) The aim is to make the website more interactive and useful for ECHA members and professionals on the field of gifted education. Thank You for all your suggestions and assistance in the future! ECHA Community is thankful for the team making this new web-site possible: Martin Reckmann, webmaster, Balázs Hornyák, web-site editor and Dániel Tüzes, web-site content-manager.
The organizers of the recent "Towards a European Talent Support Network" conference decided to give the first European Talent Networking Award to all 4 former presidents of ECHA. The award recognizes the pioneering role of ECHA in forming European-level cooperation in the field of studying and helping young people with high ability. On the picture awardees are putting together the 4 pieces of the first European Talent Networking Award: Joan Freeman, Franz Mönks (represented by Peter Csermely in his absence), Javier Tourón and Kirsi Tirri (represented by Csilla Fuszek in her absence) symbolizing the strength of cooperation.
