Meet the winners of the 1st IAHR Young Professionals Hydro-Environment challenge!

Winners of the 1st IAHR Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge

The first edition of the IAHR Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge successfully ended on 25 June. The challenge was designed to promote international and interdisciplinary collaboration among young professionals and academics working at institutions across the globe in the hydro-environment field. With a total of 81 registered participants, a number of representative case studies (challenges) aligned with IAHR themes were assigned to the participating teams who, after a period of web-based collaborative engineering work, came up with a set of solutions. Further details on the case studies, participants and participating institutions can be found on the challenge page.

The project outcomes were presented at the 1st IAHR Online Forum, during a special session devoted to the IAHR Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge.
