Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherProfessional


Since 2016, the European Honors Council stimulates talent development programs at European Higher Education Institutions, which help talented young people to reach their full potential, so they can positively contribute to the solving of societal problems. This is a challenging process, but we are convinced that international collaboration and exchange is essential for talent development in a globalized society. The EHC has grown to a membership of over 200.
We present two examples of international activities in which the EHC is involved:
1. Publishing the Journal of the European Honors Council. This journal (in open access) publishes notes on good practices and papers on research, all meant to exchange experiences and insights internationally. Working with an editorial board involving five countries, at the time of writing the Journal is in the process of publishing its third issue.
2. Taking part in the CoTalent project, in which nine institutions from six European countries work together to develop tools that help teachers to stimulate talented students in higher education.
Based on experiences from these two examples, we open the floor for a discussion with participants aiming to find innovative ways to foster international collaboration and exchange. All EHC Board members and Journal of the EHC Editorial Board members present at the conference will participate in this session.
