For distinguished careersFor research papers & paper reviewsFor young professionals & students

Celebrated every two years, IAHR World Congresses are one of the most important activities of the association and attract more than a thousand participants from all over the world. The Congresses provide scientists, engineers, organisations, central and local authorities, companies, and young professionals early in their careers with a stimulating opportunity to meet, share and discuss recent advances and experiences, identify innovative and emerging trends in hydro-environmental science and engineering, and get inspired.

IAHR World Congresses provide the best platform to receive global recognition and ultimately support for your work.

Please check each of the Awards’ pages and our FAQs section for further information. Additional enquiries regarding the nomination process should be directed to the IAHR Secretariat via email to awards@iahr.org
