In 2024 the IAHR Committee on Education and Professional Development run the 4th edition of the Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge, to promote international and interdisciplinary collaboration among young professionals and academics working at institutions across the globe in the hydro-environment field.

The Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge is an open contest, so any kind of young professional profile working on any of the IAHR main themes is welcome to take part in this online initiative. Many representative case studies aligned with IAHR themes are assigned to the participating teams who, after a period of web-based collaborative engineering work, present their project outcomes during an IAHR webinar. Several project stakeholders, including universities, companies, and public authorities are involved in the design and mentoring of the case studies. A jury made up of senior IAHR members and representatives from industry partners evaluates the teams.

The 4th edition took place between March and May 2024, for a total workload of around 50 hours over 10 weeks. During this time the participants interacted with their fellow participants as well as with IAHR coaches and technical mentors, aiming to solve two technical challenges, focusing on Water Resources and Experimental Data. The best groups had the opportunity to be recognized for their accomplishment and present their work in front of a jury made up of senior IAHR members and representatives from partners in academia and industry.
