Programme of activities for Young Professionals
On the occasion of the 39th IAHR World Congress a variety of activities will be dedicated to young professionals, including the following:
The goal of the Young Professionals Hydro-Environment Challenge is to promote international and interdisciplinary collaboration among young professionals and academics from institutions working worldwide in the hydro-environment field. The contest is open to any kind of professional profile working on any of the main IAHR themes. A number of representative case studies aligned with IAHR themes will be assigned to the participating teams. After a period of web-based collaborative engineering work, each team will have the opportunity to present its project outcomes during the 39th IAHR World Congress 2021 in Granada, Spain. A number of project stakeholders, including universities, companies, and public authorities will be involved in the design and mentoring of the case studies. A jury made up of senior IAHR members and representatives from industrial partners will evaluate the teams.
Within the framework of the 39th IAHR World Congress, the Committee on Education and Professional Development (EPD-IAHR) is organizing a job fair where students, young professionals, and international companies working in the field of hydro-environment engineering and research will be able to meet. The job fair will offer a unique opportunity for both recruiters and job hunters to explore the IAHR labour market, network, and attract and hire top talent.
