The European Talent Support Network established a home-page, which can be visited here: http://etsn.eu/. The homepage (http://etsn.eu/history-of-etsn/) emphasizes ECHA's role in the foundation of the Network and in the gifted education expert-counseling of its everyday work. The homepage contains an excellent map of the Network (http://etsn.eu/map-of-etsn/). Many thanks for Csilla Fuszek, the coordinator of the Network, Emily Church, the web-master of ECHA and the Network Council (http://etsn.eu/council-members/) led by Albert Ziegler for all their work leading to this major step!

The Network (and its European Talent Centres) issued a call for applications to become a European Talent Point (or an Associated European Talent Point situated outside Europe). The call is open until October 30th but applications are evaluated continuously and applying organizations will hear a response within a month of their submission. Applications should be sent via the on-line Application Form accessible here: http://etsn.eu/apply-to-join-etsn/. Details of the call can be seen here: http://etsn.eu/call-for-application-to-be-a-european-talent-point-or-to-be-an-associated-european-talent-point/ together with email addresses, where further information can be gained. We encourage all ECHA members to ask the respected organizations of the field of gifted education and talent support they know to consider their application to become part of the Network.

Scores were defined as shown in the scoring sheet published at the time of the call.

The 2014 General Assembly of ECHA agreed that ECHA supports, regulates and guides the formation of a European Talent Support Network. A 'European Talent Support Activity Map' listing several organizations and individuals active in supporting talent young people can be found HERE. Aims and details of the European Talent Support Network can be found in the document downloadable from HERE. European Talent Centres will form the hubs of this Network, while European Talent Points will be its nodes. European Talent Points will be accredited by European Talent Centres during 2015. The General Assembly elected an Accreditation Committee to accredit European Talent Centres. The first call for the accreditation of European Talent Centres is expected by the end of 2014, and will be published on this web-site.
