The University of Salamanca and ATENEA research together to develop programs for children and young people with high intellectual capabilities

The Vice-Chancellor for Research presented this agreement, by means of which the Observatory of High Intellectual Capabilities is created.

The Vice-Chancellor for Research and Transfer, Juan Manuel Corchado; the president of the Salmantina Association of Support for High Capabilities (ATENEA), Silvia Carlota Calvente; and María Dolores García Román, a specialist in the field of high capabilities, presented at a press conference the collaboration agreement signed for the extra-curricular improvement of children and young people with high intellectual ability.

In particular, the University of Salamanca and the Athena Association are developing an ambitious project that will make the Salamanca Studium a point of reference in the work of detecting, training and raising awareness about the high intellectual capabilities of children and young people.

In this sense, USAL is already working to coordinate research groups that bring together specialists and researchers from the University, associations and external organizations, with the aim to better the detection and implementation of measures that can improve the education of children and young people with high intellectual abilities.
