3.3.1 Russia: State of talents

For the first time in decades, a national review of young talents has been conducted across Russia. It is focused on practical implications for policy-makers, existing and potential providers, and learners and their families. The logic follows a holistic process of nurturing gifted youth from needs identification, through talent development, to a multi-faceted talent application. That is, to a personal, professional, and civic fulfilment in further life, and talent retention. Recent national initiatives are raising new hopes, pushing innovations, and addressing some of the deficiencies across the ecosystem.
