Between 8th and 10th May a very successful conference was organized with the title: "Towards a European Talent Support Network" in Budapest, Hungary. The conference had 250 participants from 30 European countries. Participants discussed the ideas on a future European Talent Support Network. (See quite a few points in Europe dealing with talent support.) Thanks to the organizers led by Csilla Fuszek the conference was a great fun. Please find a few excellent photos taken by Andras Mayer at a photo gallery page of Tehetseg.hu.
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.
