Towards a European Talent Support Network International Conference and European Talent Day

8-10 May 2014

The European Talent Support Network serves as a basis to develop a talent-friendly society and effective talent support systems in the continent. The first step towards this is to learn how to cooperate, to share information, to make new contacts. In other words: networking is a necessity.

In order to spread this idea, we have asked some of our partners and supporters to write down their thoughts about the necessity of networking. All of the experts emphasize the importance of learning from each other, exchanging ideas, and sharing knowledge and capacity.
