International ECHA Conferences were and remained biannual summits of European talent support in the last close to three decades. Every two years, the International ECHA conference brings together scientists and practitioners who are dedicated to the field of gifted education and talent support. On one hand, organizing an International ECHA Conference is a time-consuming and exhausting task. On the other hand, it is a rewarding, enriching and satisfying mission, which gives the possibility to you, the Organizer team, to show the world that your country and your organization stand up for the highly able people of all ages, and gives many long-term benefits.

The General Committee of ECHA invites organizations involved in gifted education or help of highly able young people in Europe to submit their application to organize the 17th International ECHA Conference in September 2020.

The Guidelines for an ECHA Conference can be downloaded from HERE. You should submit your application using the Application Form downloadable from HERE before the 30th of April 2017 by email to the Vice-President of ECHA, Prof. Albert Ziegler at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. By May 31st the ECHA General Committee will discuss the proposals, inform applicants about each others proposal, and the opinion of the General Committee about the proposals. Applicants will be able to withdraw or modify their application until June 30th. The General Committee will announce the time, organizer and venue of the 17th International ECHA Conference to the applicants and at the ECHA website by 15th July 2017. We look forward to receiving your proposal!
