Looking Ahead: Working Together to Fulfill a Long-Term Vision of Supporting Talent Development Worldwide

Since its launch in April of 2021, it has been the goal of Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing to expand the pro­gram in order to con­tin­ue offer­ing this one-of-a-kind tal­ent devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ty to tal­ent­ed youths world­wide free of charge for the long term. This is now hap­pen­ing. We are excit­ed to announce that the Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing research team is growing! 

Since 2017, a team of researchers at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Regens­burg (Ger­many) under the direc­tion Prof. Dr. Hei­drun Stoeger shep­herd­ed Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing from an idea into real­i­ty. Thanks to the gen­er­ous and far-sight­ed finan­cial under­writ­ing of the pro­gram owner—the Ham­dan Bin Rashid Al Mak­toum Foun­da­tion for Dis­tin­guished Aca­d­e­m­ic Per­for­mance (Dubai, UAE)—Global Tal­ent Men­tor­ing is now mov­ing into a new chap­ter. Join­ing Prof. Dr. Stoeger as co-direc­tor is Prof. Drs. Albert Ziegler, Chair Pro­fes­sor of Edu­ca­tion­al Psy­chol­o­gy and Research on Excel­lence at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Erlan­gen-Nurem­berg. Togeth­er, Prof. Dr. Stoeger and Prof. Drs. Ziegler will lead an expand­ed multi­na­tion­al team col­lab­o­rat­ing across three insti­tu­tions in Ger­many and the Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates (the Uni­ver­si­ty of Regens­burg, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Erlan­gen-Nurem­berg, and the Ham­dan Foun­da­tion) to oper­ate and grow Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing as a flag­ship offer­ing of the Ham­dan Foundation’s World Gift­ed­ness Center. 

Sub­teams of researchers from four con­ti­nents locat­ed in Regens­burg, Nurem­berg, and Dubai will com­bine their knowl­edge, skills, and enthu­si­asm to ensure that Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing will flour­ish. We wel­come the new team mem­bers and look for­ward to work­ing togeth­er with them on enhanc­ing the program!
