ECHA Conferences were and remained biannual summits of European talent support in the last close to three decades. Every two years, the ECHA conference brings together scientists and practioners who are dedicated to the field of gifted and talented education. Organizing an ECHA conference is time-consuming, exhausting, frustrating, causing sleepless nights. On the other hand, it is rewarding, enriching, satisfying, and giving the possibility to show the world that your country and your organization stand up for the highly able people of all ages. 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 2018 ECHA Conference. 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 September 2015. You can send the proposal by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In December 2015, the ECHA General Committee will decide, where the next ECHA conference will take place. We will announce the site and time at the ECHA web-site. We look forward to receiving your proposal!
