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!
Why to participate?
The congress is a wonderful opportunity to present your work and get mentoring from leading experts.

You will meet with representatives of the IAHR technical committees.
You will be invited to meet and interact with your peers and mentors through breakout sessions.
You will be able to connect with other Young Professionals Networks (YPNs) worldwide and by areas of expertise.
This is also the chance to make your work known.
All the proceedings will be published and made available in the IAHR e-library after the congress.
Selected works will be invited to publish a paper in a special issue of the Journal of Applied Water Engineering and Research.
Open to all!
