Vol. 7 No. 1 (2023): Special issue: Addressing complex problems in Higher Education Talent Programs

This special issue is devoted to contributions on addressing complex problems in higher education talent programs.

The grand challenges of our time are so complex and/or multifaceted that they can best be addressed using innovative approaches, such as interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approaches. Such approaches require crossing boundaries between perspectives and science domains. Talent programs in higher education (i.e. programs aimed at assisting talented students in accelerating their growth) can provide particularly fruitful environments in which students can prepare themselves for handling complex challenges by familiarizing themselves with inter-/transdisciplinary problem-solving.

How students work on familiarizing themselves with inter/transdisciplinary problem-solving varies greatly within and between talent programs. This special issue of the Journal of the European Honors Council aims to provide a platform for educators, educational researchers and other stakeholders to showcase their efforts and share knowledge. The goal is to facilitate the exchange of both success stories and lessons learned that can help others to (further) develop their talent programs.
