The IAHR Young Professionals Congresses give young professionals, researchers and students the opportunity to present their work and access mentoring from leading global experts. Representing a unique opportunity for networking and promoting their work, the success of the inaugural YP Congress in 2020 with 924 registered participants has ensured that the event is now established as an ongoing annual series organised by young professionals and for young professionals. Free and open to all!

We are delighted to announce that a record 182 abstracts have been received for the 3rd edition of the IAHR Young Professionals Congress! The International Scientific Committee comprises 69 experts from the different technical areas and help to review submitted abstracts, chair the Congress sessions and provide mentorship to all participants!
