The fourth international science conference: The Gifted and the Family, Learning and Business Environments

The goal of this year’s conference is to consider the relationship between the phenomenon of giftedness and those factors that directly affect its recognition, support, development and full realization. These factors are family, the education system and the business environment in which giftedness can manifest itself in different domains.

The conference is intended for pre-school and school teachers, psychologists, educators, special education teachers, medical doctors, employees in public services and administration, media workers, students and others who engage in their work with gifted children, youth and adults, both from Serbia and from abroad.
