Juan Antonio Alonso, President of Eurotalent      Dear friends,

I have the pleasure of chairing Eurotalent according to the January elections in Paris, and I hope that together we achieve the goals Eurotalent established almost three decades ago: the Investigation, the Information/awareness, the Training, the Education, the Publications and the Conferences/scientific Meetings.

It would be welcome to remember the common goals for which we need to combine our energies:

* Help in detection and identification the giftedness and its high potential.
* Promote and foment the actions of theoretical and applied investigation.
* Clarify the debate in order to abandon the myth of the little prodigy, emphasizing in the complexity and fragility of these precocious children and teens, gifted and talented.
* Promote the training (for the responsible of teaching, psychologist, parents, specialist, social workers...).
* Promote an integral development of each student regarding to their special educational needs.
* Work in the identification with the expansion of the techniques, tools and procedures needed in order to ensure that all the students have the same opportunities to be identified and, of course, to be educated with programs according to their needs.
* Foment the publication of documents, materials and different instruments relevant in this field.
* Organize conferences or support the organization of symposium, scientific meetings, youth meetings, and so on.
* Promote, in the national states, the legislative and executive establishment of the adequate educational disposals.
* Develop exchanges between the international and national associations about this topic.
* Maintain the relationships with other European institutions for accomplish the necessary actions: European Parliament, European Commission, and so on.
* Establish working relationships with other non governmental organizations.

I know that these objectives are ambitious, but they are also exciting and a challenge for those who believe in a better education for all the students including in the same way the gifted and talented students.
